Would have to sturdy up the legs for that though.
First off 30 gallon drums seem to be harder to come by than 85 gallon overpack drums. But if those are your plans start searching now.
I had a rustbucket 18" Red Bar-B-Kettle that I considered turning into a SJP using replacement parts from Weber, but I found a 30 gallon drum without a lid.
No date code
The Weber lid does not fit the drum, so I cut the bowl and did the swamprb UDS Weber lid flange mod and tack welded it to the drum.
I wouldn't be surprised if Cajun Bandit considers making a Stacker for the 18"Kettle/WSM in the future.
