So how does the 85 cook?
Do you like it better then the 55?
I like the idea of being able to disassemble for cleaning. I was thinking about on a 55 cutting it about 12-15 inches above the bottom and welding a metal ring on the inside and outside of the base about 4" tall so you could pick the top part up to get the fire started and for cleanup. You would just set the top down between the two pieces for the cook. To help with the air tightness you could have a piece of woodstove gasket between the two rings for the top part to sit on. Just wonder about the stability in something like that?
