Here is my drum! I want to be able to reuse the lid after I cut it off. Should I cut the lid on top or on the the side of the drum below the lip?

@ BuckHunter.... I cut the inside of mine, and then took the grinder to smooth all the edges. Weber top hammered out and molded back to fit, added a stove gasket around the top, and good to go!

it's a 20" pizza pan. the 16 worked fine, was cheap & readily available, but if i'm not q'ing more often than not i find myself mod-ing.

on a long burn the 16 fills up - not a choking issue just more cleanup

Ok read this thing and now I need one. Picked up this drum that had apple juice in it today. $15 the guy has about 100 or more here in Apple Valley Ca. Looks like just paint on the inside of it. Flat lid with ring but no holes in it.

Burned out my drum today and started wire wheeling it. Holy **** this is thing is taking for ever to wire wheel out. I've spent about 40 minutes and I've only managed to remove the top 1/3rd of the barrels liner and my hands are killing me now from holding on the drill.

Am I missing a valuable tip in this thread about doing this? And after doing the top 1/3 I'm dreading getting down to the bottom. Am I going to have to lie down with my head in the barrel? I don't want to spend 40 minutes bent at the waste trying to reach the bottom.

I'm thinking about sandblasting. I'm wondering how much it would cost to have a barrel sandblasted?

If you want to use the lid you're going to need a drum with a removable lid, the kind with the locking ring.

Barrel was free so I couldn't afford to be picky. Especially down here where everyone is selling the plastic barrels on craigslist.

Thanks, I figured that out today. I got the top cut out, intake holes drilled, and bolts in for my rack. Hope to get it burned out this week. I'm ready for some bbq!

Buy a new, unlined barrel with lid for $50.00.

If you are still working on it, I used a weed burner before wire brushing, it made very quick work of the inside liner, heat it from the outside and it will burn the inside liner off. If you put the torch inside, it will just burn out as it consumes the oxygen so rapidly.

Just getting home to take a crack at it again today. I might go get my Bayou Classic burner out and rig a way to hold just the burner up to the outside of the stand.
