Default Stainless steel drum Sugestions

So I finished my UDS last weekend and it is time for the next project. My buddy offered me his 55 gallon stainless steel drum to make a Q of some sort out of. I have the UDS and am looking for a good idea for what to do with the Stainless drum. I do not have a welder so it is limiting on what is possible. However I can prossbly talk a diffrent buddy into doing some welding if needed. I was thinking some sort of offset smoker but am open to ideas. The collective knowledge on this board is very impresive so i am excited about the possablities.

I'd vote a SS UDS. Would be sweet.

Or you could have your friend weld you up a firebox and make an offset vertical. Just a thought.

Here's a link to Big Poppa's kit. Your friend could help you put the stuff on the drum.

Well sound like another uds is the fan favorite. it would look pretty sweet. Other that the obviously awesome look of the stainless uds any other benefits from making one?
I am thinking a horizontal with smoke box would be kind of a fun challenge. Would cost me some beer and q i am sure but would be nice having another q in the arsenal.

I say go with the Stainless Steel UDS w/ the Big Poppa Smoker UDS Kit and possibly get a custom cast iron grate. BigPoppaSmoker hooked Cowgirl up with one and boy does it look sweet.

Here is a link to her blog for her Stainless Steel UDS.
