I made 1, 6 half inch close nipples threaded into the bottom of the barrel with caps, (use a multi drill bit, they thread right in). 8 half inch holes in the lid. I used the charcoal grate from a weber 18" kettle wrapped in expanded metal for the fire pit. the expanded metal is 13" high, with 2.5" below the grate for ash, and 10.5 inches above the grate for charcaol. this holds 12 pounds easy, and will burn at 225 degrees for 10 to 12 hours.
