Here are three that I have made. The all black one was about 6 years ago. It was aproject that my Late father and I worked on before he passed.

The "Operation BBQ Relief" one is a project my wife and I worked on as a chairity auction item for The Friends of OBR fundraiser in Louisville KY back in Febuary. I sold for $1000.00.

The red and black one was also a husband and wife project and I it went to a handicap friend of mine that has a love for BBQ.

So I found this barrel in really good shape for free. It has a lid that is clamped on and the guy wouldn't open it for me. Is this a good drum for a smoker?barrel.jpg

I've heard that nuclear waste adds a nice smokey flavor to your meat.

That's the key. You don't want to nuke your meat.

And adjustable shelving racks. Semi gloss high heat paint and high heat clear coat. Need to season it then I'll be ready for action.




i like what you used to hold the racks up, how has it held up over time with the heat?

i came across these 2 beauties the other day. guess i know what i am doing this wekend. one will be a traditional upright UDS and i have something formulating for the other one.

So far I'm quite happy with how this prototype works.

One intake on each side

Easy ash removal








smaller upper rack for when required

I am in the middle of my build... 55 gal drum and I am using 22.5 weber lid. The issue is that the lid is just a little too small, like and 1/8 of an inch.

I have seen the steel strap bolted to the inside or the rope mod but i want to just grind off a little bit off the top of the barrel. Anyone see an issue with this? Seems like the most logical to me
