You should try to find some carbon steel pipe, and scratch the 55 gal drum idea. 3/8" thick. I am not a pitmaster, but I do understand pipe welding, and understand that thin metal means loss of heat. In my opinion if you going to spend the time building a pit do your research, and build one that will last forever. Don't cut corners. 55 gal drums are cutting corners. With that being said my pit is 24"x 3'3"x3/8" with a fire box that is 18x3'2"x1/2" on a 2x2x1/4" tube steel stand. It currently weights about 800lbs. But it will be around for a long time.
