Any ideas? or should I just quit my complaining and keep wiping her down like a wet dog?
I know this doesn't address your issue on the outside of the barrel, but what I've found that helps keep the water collecting to a minimum in the bottom of the barrel is keeping a thin layer, maybe 1/4", of ash on the bottom. This acts like kitty litter for the water that does make its way down.

Got the basket loaded and the pork coming out of the brine soon. Gonna smoke up some bacon tonight, with beans in a dutch oven on a grate just above the basket.
Help my thread become the sausage thread:
