Default My Fugly Drum Smoker

Well, I must say there is a lot of reading here. Been lurking in the shadows reading and looking at all these wonderful UDS. I decided to take some of this and some of that and start my build. I got the drum from a neighbor that after talking with him he decided to jump in this experience he got 2 for FREE! As you can see from the pics, I spent this past weekend in the garage with the fan at my back and temps pushing high 90's.... But had fun.

STILL GOT SOME WORK TO DO.
I need to buy the expanded metal to build the burner tray, add a handle on the lid, drum thermostat, wheels, ball valve and add a stack the top.

I welcome all suggestions.

Question(s):
- I see all different size burner trays. What size works best? I was thinking 14" round X 8" high.
-Best drum thermostat? I see all types...
-Where are you guys getting the chrome stacks from?

Well, again thank you to everyone here. Just think I stumbled across this site while looking for something else...
TTYL, gIz
