Thanks!

Those are the longest short ribs I've ever seen... If they have a good amount of meat, I would still pull the membrane, do the brisket rub, and and smoke them for a solid 8 hours... As Bubba called it, 'Brisket on a Stick'

That would be the highly technical removal mechanism on the fire basket... (the pipe)

Some have used a long (tall) pipe for their intake but many had problems with it acting more like an exhaust. He also recommends not using anything less than 1" intake. In fact the one that I have has 3 1" intakes with caps on two of them and a valve on the third.

The 'Big Belly Mod" is also known here in the Mid-West as the 'Dicky-Doo'... Our bellies stick out further than our D!%ky Do....

Hope this helps Brother

All of a sudden bright yellow is the trend?
I saw that the inside of your barrel still has a colour,is that paint that you just can grind off?
I've got a barrel that looks similair on the inside.
Nice drum btw.

Hey Norco, I appreciate you taking pix of that and all! I am a jack of all trades, and got what you said without the pix, but they will surely be a big help to others.

How much of this I will be able to do, I dunno, cuz costs keep ratching up on these drums. Even with donated grills, I have about $75 each in materials -- and the drums were free! Could not believe what I got charged for the expanded metal and a few other pieces of metal. I might just have to go with the riser on mine for now. But we'll see. I like the idea!
