Any ideas on the best drum smoker out there or a good site to build one?

Thanks,

Hunsaker sells a very nice complete drum or the parts to build your own.

The Big Poppa kit is well done and easy to build and cooks great

All depends on how many different ways you want to be able cook, how much food you want to cook at one time. Are you planning on building it? Or buying completed. The master UDS thread has soooo many different ideas. You just have to choose. Take notes and page numbers so you can go back to review things when you find ideas you like as you go thru the pages.

If you source the parts , and are some what mechanically inclined , you can build one for less than $100.00

The big poppa kit is nice if you already have a lid. My drum came with out the lid, so I needed to acquire a 22.5 weber lid to fit. I decided to buy from walmart 22.5 original weber kettle for $99, I used the lid, cooking grate and the charcoal grate from this. But if I had to spend another $150 on Big Poppa kit, then it is getting more expensive than I wanted to spend.

Here are a few pages of clone builds I've done including the Hunsaker Smokers, GDS, Big Drum Smokers, and BPS cans.
