Good luck with that. Don't forget the 14" steel pipe and a band saw to cut it with for the coal basket.
Oh, and you'll also need a way to apply the high-temp powder coat.

I agree, all of the local 55 gallon drums are getting scooped up by pit builders locally so I can't find one on CL. I'm just going to spend the money and be done with it(hopefully) I can't wait to get it and try it out.

Cool. FYI - The PBC is a 30-gallon drum, not 55.

14" steel pipe for a basket? I don't see what's wrong with a Weber charcoal grate and some expanded metal, rebar or pipe, s- hooks, all available at your local home improvement warehouse... and high temp paint and a paint brush are both readily available and cheap...

Just saying there's more than one way to do it without a bandsaw, special coatings, etc. and he can save a lot of dough in the process.

True, but then you're not building the same cooker. I can build a Pinto and
call it a Corvette (and save a lot of money), but it isn't the same thing.
That's my point.

thanks, I'm aware that it is a 30 gallon which will actually work better for me. I've been limited to rolling my ribs with a skewer to cook a full rack on my 18" WSM. I couldn't believe it when I saw the video of him cooking 8 full racks. It almost makes me want to buy two at the lower price and start catering lol.

Ha! Don't let the size fool you. Here's a shot of 12 cornish game hen halves hanging at a
competition earlier this year.

Resisting the urge to buy one... tempting... tempting... no. I don't need one. But I want one... But only to figure out how they work.

Now John, answer the question whether you have ever burned meat. And talk to your buddy Noah and find out why his ribs aren't burned/ well done at one end but not the other. thanks.

I've never even come halfway close to burning meat, and I've cooked all four comp
categories in it at a comp. In fact, when I joined Noah's team as an assistant we beat
Johnny Trigg in ribs (hung) and pork.

Noah will be on Greg Rempe's BBQ Central Radio tonight at 10 EST to discuss the
cooker.

P.S. Want to really have your categories blown? Watch his tri-tip video
and pay close attention to the small end when he slices it. ;-)

I made a turkey hanger and hung my Thanksgiving bird. It was 14 lbs and
cooked to perfection in three hours. No muss, no fuss, no kidding!

Great idea Patio with the turkey hanger. I too own a PBC and love it. I did 3 12LB turkeys thanksgiving day and all came out othe PBC moist and not burned or charred to death. Of course I did them one at a time. About 2.5 to 3 hours. Perfect. I think the pic in the threads before are deceiving it does look like the q is close to the fire but that is not the case. My neighbor was still watching his bird when I had finished 3 birds!!LOL Now he wants what I have.

You just adjust temps by the vent at the bottom? So it vents at the top through the rebar holes? Thanks.

Well, the short answer is that you don't need to adjust temps. The intake
comes pre-set to your elevation (based on zip code). You only need to adjust
it if you change elevation.

Yes, the exhaust is through the rod holes.
