Default 55 gal. Drum...check. Ball valve, check...UDS

Well today has been a productive day for me. Went this morning and picked up the 55 gallon drum that was donated to me (THANK YOU - SIRPORKALOT!!). The the wife and I hit Home Depot. Bought just about everything I need to build this puppy. The only thing I dont have is the grill grates, the temp guage, and the materials to make the charcoal basket out of, and the chimney. I figure Ill get those after I burn this bad boy and season it. Got plenty of wood out back (2x4's etc) that Im gonna bust up and torch.

cant believe I have finally got what I need to build this. Pron to follow when I start up tomorrow.
