Would the interior lining come off as easily with the weedburner? Just a thought.

oops, Me bad. I missed the reference to the lining. If I use the weed burner my neighbors will be happier I think.

Is the special at harbor freight still there for the burner with the switch? Or is the concensus to go with the simpler one? What btu's should I seek?

Thanks!

Chinafreight has several models. If you go online and the price is better, just print out the page and they will match the price. I think I paid $19 for a weed burner without the igniter, the ones with the igniter were $24.

It's called "Harbor Freight". It is low cost cause most of the items are from China. We just call it China Freight.

There is something to be said for a weed burner with a long wand. Keeps you out of harms way not only from the flame and heat (especially in a drum), but keeps you farther from those little hotties of exploding lump when lighting. I have a 30" inch one, with just a needle valve for control. I also had them make a 15' hose. Your local LP dealer should have weed burners along with all the other propane goodies. They normally can make up any length of hose for you.



Quick connects are also available.

I had one of those little hotties explode and ended up with a blister on my upper and lower eyelid.....Ouch! Lump will do that to you. Briquettes probably wouldn't. I think it depends on the amount of moisture contained in the actual piece of charcoal/lump.

Therefore my advice would be to follow thirdeye's advice.

I found that Northern Tool has a 10ft hose and a 27 in wand with the needle valve, all for $55.

I'm bad with being handy, so my charcoal basket is butt ugly. Just wondering where you got the metal for yours? Also how you were able to bend it so pretty? I had a hell of a time trying to bend mine. Perhaps mine was just too thick... Also could I get the name of what that metal is called so I don't look too stupid when I ask for it? I asked for expanded metal but home depot didn't know what I was talking about. Great looking drum btw, mine is butt ugly and it's starting to rust :(
