I got my drum yesterday. I picked it up at a place that rebuilds industrial machines. The get mineral oil in them and gave it to me for free. I got the top cut off inside the top roll, got a fire grate and ring at a machine shop. I picked up a Weber Kettle lid out of a trash pile and it fits perfectly... nice and snug but goes on without any coaxing.

I burned it out tonight and bought all of my hardware. For now I am just going to use the cooking grate out of my Weber. I will try to get it all done this weekend and post pictures.

Including the machine shop costs and the hardware it looks like I will have about $50 in mine. I am stoked!!!!
