Well enough lurking. I've sat thru this entire dog & pony show, and for any other new folks.... any question you could conceive is here, answered, in detail...Likely several times over again.
So, here's my take...
I got my hands on a free drum from work, and after some reading here I got going. KISS... 4 " inlets; 2 with valves. Drilled holes in the lid for exhaust, used carriage bolts to hold a single (for now) Weber grate. Made a charcoal basket out of a retired 18" grill grate and expanded steel (also free, sometimes I love my job). After 1 cleaning I made an ash pan out of a cheap grill from the dollar store. After a few cooks I wanted higher capacity, but couldn't source a kettle lid. Refusing to buy one, I came home with another drum from work and partitioned the top 1/3 to extend my drum. Works like a champ, and now I've got room for another grate, or sausage hangers, or....
At any rate I wanted to thank the folks here, and share yet another success story.
