55gal K-1 kerosene drum smoker build
I Have a few of these i had for YEARS. The other day i decided to start getting ready for spring/nascar/superbowl so i cut (i was nervous as crap) the lid out, washed it out with soap and water and got my hinges connected and lid on. I'm getting ready to burn it out tomorrow (maybe) for 12 hours or until burns all the paint off the outside of the drum.
What do you guys do to keep the lid from falling back into the barrel? i don't have a wielder, well i do but it's really big and i would have to carry it up a hill 300 yards and plug it in where the dryer is and thats just too much trouble for a tiny bit of wielding, so what else could i do?
