I don't have any experience with BBQ equipment but I did design & build a 1 barrel RIMS. My experience with building home-brewing equipment, is you end up spending nearly what a commercial builder would charge and you often have to live with design flaws/ lack of features. I spent a lot of time and money redoing and correcting mistakes on my equipment. I you want to build your own cooker I say go for it, I just don't know how much money you'll save. I would guess Big Drum Smokers have evolved and continuously improved. He's made the mistakes so you won't have to.

Big Drum charges $595 plus $160 for shipping. Local guy is going to charge me about $160 for a similar custom design.

I don't doubt you can get one made more cheaply. Will it work as a well? The Big Drum seems to get rave reviews.

It does get great reviews. That is what prompted me to try this style.

Sad when you work at a bank and can't get a loan...

You farkers. I grabbed a tape measure and was heading out in the dark to measure the burn barrel before I remembered Noah already gave him the dimensions on the previous page.

You are not going to get 3 shelves in a 55 gallon and have it work'
I have a basic BDS and the direct fire flavor is wonderful
Much better than our WSM

Right, Thom. That is what the BDS is all about.

And remember, Mista----We are talking about a 22 inch diameter cooking grate. That will hold a bunch of stuff. I don't remember off hand the diameter of a WMS, but I am guessing that the BDS is twice the capicity per grate.

In case you missed it, I suggested earlier to use the dome lid from a Weber kettle on top of the barrel, that will increase the hight enough for you to have two shelves, three if they are close together at the top, so you could do thin stuff like ribs, etc.
