did you get the liner out with one burn, or was there no liner?

The drum was sold to me as unlined. So it was just an extra precautionary burn.

Boys and girls, I found a great source for drums. Virgin drums, nothing ever been in them but air!
Dallas Steel Drums
2214 SINGLETON BLVD
DALLAS, TEXAS
75212

(214) 638-7027
Monday – Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm
Extra heavy duty drum: $49.00
Removable Bolt / Ring lid
2” & ¾” bung in lid
New drum never used / no liner / metal only
Total cost out the door is: $53.04 I know, it is a little high, but no burn out required! Just build it, season it, and cook in it.

Good price, but freight could get expensive.

I am happy to report that as of today I am part of the weed burner crew. I have a few barrels to try her out on this weekend I hope.

The gauge of the steel would be similar so heat loss should not be a problem. You could use magnet strips if they were strong enough or I was planning on "borrowing" some high powered mags from the physics dept at school.

Do you think silicone would still be necessary? I've got 2 barrels in the yard and might just try this for version 2.0. Probably not anytime soon...wife is due next month so I'll be on lockdown! If anyone thinks it's a good idea try it out and let me know.
I used the method you are thinking about for the bottom hatch of my tandoor. It works well, but I don't have to worry about air leaks with the tandoor - it is meant to blaze. The hatch I cut is not very big - about the size of a standard brick. The slightly oversized door was cut from the cut off top of the drum.

Jkstone's method has merit - I like the idea of being able to access the lower grate food without taking the lid or top grate groceries off. The bottom lid looks like it would be useful for adding fuel for extra long cooks. However, with doors that big, I wonder if the "crush" strength of the drum is decreased. Might not be somoething worth worrying about if its on a dolly and handled carefully?

Also, I used rare earth magnets (slim and shiny) to keep the door closed and it has worked great, even after many firings.

Still did not seal to my likeing so I applied some furnace gasket to the lid. Now with the bolts and gasket I have a secure lid with no leaks. Smoke on......

Hope this helps, if not ask away .

If you take note the pic of the drum with the lid on it is in use.........

Pressure wash if you have one handy, otherwise just wash it out with a scrub brush and some dish detergent and you're good to go.

IMHO no liner is worth the price!

I'll probaby pressure wash and scrub it out tomorrow morning...

Is there a time limit of what a good burn out time is..?!? I tried to keep it raging for as long as possible, but I got freaked out since I live in a neighborhood with houses really close to each other... I just don't want to worry about whether or not I burned everything out...

You probably have a bit of build up from the soft wood pitch but it should wash off. Make sure you get a good fit on your lid and you will have the perfect smoker. I like the control, ease of cleaning and ability to shake your basket that you get by using the BGE vent. Looks good too!
You will find quite a difference in taste compared to the BGE with a platesetter.
