MEATAL DRUMS $10.00 . I ALSO HAVE ALOT OF PLASTIC RAIN BARRELS FOR $ 12.00 A PIECE.
It's all right for you guys in the US, you tell someone here that you are building a BBQ smoker out of a drum they think you mean it'll be mounted horizontally and cut in half with the top half hinged to the bottom and a large grill accross the length/width. When you explain that you mean a smoker not a grill they generally look blankly at you, then say "Ohhh, a smoker, so what, you're gonna be makin' kippers an' stuff in it, yeah?" Err, no, this is hot smoking, "Oh, what the difference then?" The clue's in the name you muppet, hot
as opposed to cold
Mind you, I described ABT's to a chilli-loving colleague and he sounded interested so I might have one convert to sweet blue
