I finally finished my drum. I read almost all of the Mother of all threads and I have to say THANK YOU
to all of the Brethren who contributed to the thread. Unfortunatly my camera was acting up during the build but my son showed up with his camera during my seasoning run. The drum has double racks, 3 each 3/4" inlets with one controlled by a ball valve, 2 thermometer insertion points on the drum, and 1 thermometer on the lid.
I need to practice with it to master the temp control. It was a windy day so that didn't help but I was able to get it to stay pretty much between 250 and 300 with a lot of tending but like I said it was pretty windy.
