As far as my dad and uncle know he always just used a small hibachi for the coals and slid it in. And i could very well do it in batches, and keep the done ones wrapped in a cooler. And no pictures.

That is my worry is cooking times, and not wanting them over cooked. Its a 55 gallon steel drum. Even though on the pbc it doesnt seem a problem of the ends cooking faster at the coals. maybe i can wrap then in foil after about an hour or something.
