Help here brothers, 24" from the bottom of your fire basket I think... If you find a webber kettle lid you can add an additional grate above that. Yes...No...Maybe...Whatever... For sure...Fark it... what ever you want...No way...Try something...Punt...Help. LOL. Time for bed.

24" from the bottom of the fire basket to your first rack. If you use a Weber lid ... that will allow you to put in a second rack 5" +/- above the first rack. On my next drum ... the pipe nipples will be somewhere around 1 1/2" from the bottom of the drum. Hope that helps.

Maybe not, if they only utilize used pallets. But your point is well taken.

Don't know how tall mine is but my first grate is 6" from the top and the second one is 6" below that.

Has anybody tried to use a metal garbage can instead of a barrel? They are definitely more accessible than the drums, bu I wonder what the trade-offs are with using galvanized steel...

Here's a few possibles in NJ...

http://www.envirobiz.com/datademo/drum.htm
~ with the caveat that I have no idea how 'clean' and reconditioned barrel would be...or, how you'd tell what was previously in it.

Are ya close to Atlantic City? They probably get buffet food in 55 gallon barrels.

Farm supply hardware stores in our area...do you have something like that close. Ask for 55 gal burn barrels. Hope that might help you find one.
