If you had the torch down in the drum when this was happening it may have been starving for fresh oxygen. I ran into this on my drum. Lots of time the blaster just blows itself out when in drum. I bought the igniter one from Harbor Freight and was burning leaves in a drum (dual use) and the wire to the igniter melted and is no good now. Something to think about. Also I only use @ 3 medium chunks of hickory on mine and it is plenty (Wal-Mart bag size).
