Thanks Mark,that was a computer table indeed.
Found it next to my house sitting there and rotting.
I chopped the top part off and shortened the table part so the barrel could rest on it.
Gonna paint it black,mount a little piece of wood for a table,a handle so I can push and maybe change the wheels.

Yup; needs a plank shelf. The wheels look more than adequate; unless you plan on taking the rig off-road alot.

Plank shelf,that's what I meant.
You can see on the previous page how easily I can mount it with the wholes being there allready.
As for the wheels,you're right.
Probably I'm gonna use this for in my own garden or on the schoolyard that's behind it.
If I'm gonna take that drum elsewhere I'm gonna use picnic table legs (those tables that you can fold out when you're on holidays with a camper).
It was my first idea but I found the computer desk and could'nt leave it there.
This is from our brother Niek who's also on the same project as I.
The legs are from a picnic table I guess,you can fold it up easy for transport.

So I don't have time to go back thru all the posts........what do you guys use to run your digital meat probe into the smoker? Just under the lid, or will it then leak too much?

Niek's foldable/portable design is very practical. No reason it couldn't have a removable plank shelf too.

I drilled a hold in the side of mine and fed the probe through. You won't have a problem with leaking as long as you have a good exhaust on your lid.

Westernhunter just look a page or two back at my smoker. I use aluminum cable clamps. There cheap and you can run a few probes through them.

Very practical.
I'll tell him about the plank shelf if he didn't allready came up with it.
Brother Skidder showed some cool hinges on the previous page that'll mayby work on Niek's idea.

Skidder,

Sent you a PM. I did a search for cable clamps, and not seeing what you are running your probe through. I just come up with the clamps that hold wires and have a hole to put a screw through. Yours looks more like some sort of aluminum grommet.

Where can I find those?

Default Horizontal & Offset Drum Smokers

FYI – I started a thread for Horizontal & Offset Drum Smokers It's getting harder & harder to find those things amongst all the cool UDS builds here. I thought a stand alone thread might help.

You can also use Sensor Grommets sold through Rock's Bar-B-Que http://www.rocksbarbque.com/Accessories.html

Wow, haven't been around in a while and this thread grew. This isn't all pretty but it makes some good bbq.



I have one thing going on that makes me wonder. The bottom rack is 24.3" from the bottom of the charcoal ring, the second is 7.5" above that. Last weekend I had a 12-13lb packer on the bottom rack and an 8-9lb butt on the top rack. Kept the temps in the 225-270 range all day and after 10.5 hours the brisket was done, the butt was only at 175.

I'm thinking I need to swap the racks half way through the cook but I hate to go to all the trouble. This happen to anyone else?

Hi. I have made it through 77 pages of this thread and I'm hooked. I have looked in to drums and found two different sources. One has open head used food grade lined drums with lids for $40. Another has new, painted, unlined drums with lid and clamp for $75.

I am assuming that (from what I have read) the paint on the outside of the new drum should be fine. The drum should be good to go.

How's the price though? The price on the used drums seems high given the prices I have seen posted on here, but I have to say I was quite looking forward to the burnout, being a pyro and all. The cleaning after that, not so much.

Any opinions?

Dave
