Default First try

Well after reading this thread "twice"! I tackled my first build. Thanks to all for the ideas!

Burning out freebie barrel..


Making firebox out of old grill..


Firebox done..


Decided to trim Weber lid to fit into drum lid..


Lid cut out...


Fitting..and it worked. Brazed it together after grinding porcelin off in a few spots.


Air intake..


Twin racks and test fire..


Test chicken..


A bit of paint and shortened a handcart to bolt to barrel for transportation. Going to raise it 2" to keep off of ground before bolting together.


Ash poker in cart hole..


Sorry if this is to long, but thank again to all your posts for ideas!!
