I designed and built the infamous EDS (Ed's Drum Smoker). It's working really well. It has it's own idiosyncrasies that I'm enjoying finding and making adjustments to.
Quick question to NORCOREDNECK. I just sent my santa list out, one of my requests was a Weber lid. I've looked around alot and can't find just a lid. Where did you find it? And secondly I hope it fits better than it looks. Does it seal around the drum lip ok?

I have thought about building a smoker, which I need like a hole in the head. BUT..without pictures, you ain't got nothin' to discuss. I have built a smoker, so I got no picures. Those that have, let's see 'em!

I know this was for Norco but I used my weber lid on my barrel last night. It will sit on top of the barrel and cover it but it isn't wide enough to fit snuggly around the top of the barrel. Worked fine though. Very minimal amount of smoke escapes out of the side. Smoked 2 turkeys on the top grate with no problems.

If I was sure how to do it I could post from an earlier thread titled
".50 cent tour of the EDS". If you search threads started by ModelMaker you could dig it up.
Today is not the day to spend time figuring it out. I have a new computer and a new camera and soon will get the two of them together.

Bought a BSKD, did the mods ( larger opening to the smoke chamber, damper, packing quilt on the upright, K-wool wrap on the firebox) myself. Still hoping (praying the O.L. will let me) for a bigger & better brand/model.

Hey BigMista...do you get as much sick enjoyment as I do when taunting the neighbors with the aroma of hickory smoke?

I pull the pit out of the garage and after about three hours the neighborhood starts to gather in my driveway saying, "Man, that smells good. I wish I had some BBQ" or "Smoked brisket? Never had it. Is it good?"

All of the questions are geared toward me offering a donated take-home plate.
