Thanks Norco. I want to do something like N8Man did. I need to have a smoke stack so I can vent out the smoke from my covered deck. So I guess one like this from McMaster Carr?
With Lever-Lock Closing Ring— 2" and 3/4" NPT Bung Openings with Plugs
55 23 1/2" 34 1/2" 18/20/20/12 UN1A2/Y425/S; UN1A2/Y1.2/100
4115T44 86.58

I take it the closed head drums are ones where the lid does not come off? No experience with barrels.

Do the new ones need burnt out like everyone mentions on this thread? And do you then need to need to season them like other smokers?

I think I would just get a new one instead of spending the time searching since I am out in the middle of no where.

I found 85 gallon drums online at Wholesale Industrial Supply ( ) they are $122 plus shipping. Don't know if there are any advantages of a 85 over a 55 though. Have to ponder on that for a bit. Not to worried about the $40 price difference, just want to make a good one.
