Arrow Need 55Gal Grill/Smoker Help

Hi All,

I just picked up 2 brand new 55 gal drums & I was thinking about turning 1 into a grill. Anyone have any web site links that have a free online "How-To"??

Do a search here for UDS. Follow Norcoredneck's advice on this one, Newbie

If you really care about this place, you'll show some respect for it.

Your beard is so stupid, it took two hours to watch 60 Minutes.

Do exactly as t-schutte says, then send a case of beer to Norco. Not the town, the Brethren...

Got about 1.5 hours? Read the UDS thread - all 35 pages.

Find a 22.5" Weber kettle and get to work!
