Looking to buy my father a drum cooker he has a gateway and a Hunsaker that I purchased for him over the past two years. I am looking to get him another one for his b-day who else other than the two mentioned builds a quality drum?

Pit Barrel Cooker. Less flexibility in terms of temp control, but he might like it, too.

He probably would like to upgrade to a LSG offset now.

I'm a Hunsaker fan, but if you don't mind used, Brother LTG is selling some Outsider's BBQ drums.

I was trying to remember which Brethren was affiliated with Outsider's (LTG), and I happened to come across last year's nearly identical thread :twitch:

That depends on who the craftiest person is that you know. UDS "brand" makes any type you want. So if you want 55 gallon and the option to grill or hang...UDS will do it

Whitewater drums in Minnesota are putting out some great drums that people up north have done well with in competition. And they are unlike the other two.

Iím assuming you know the whole story on why he switched from 2 intakes to a single (wonder where he got that idea from as well)?

Just curious why he needs a 3rd drum?

last year the op started the thread and then never replied. Im going to guess the same will happen this time so let me hazard some guesses.

1.his dad cooks for large crowds and REALLY likes drums, BUT doesnt want another gateway or hunsaker :shock:

2. his dad wants a cooker to cook fish and hotdogs in and really doesnt want another gateway or hunsaker?

3. his dad collects drums and wants something different.

4. his dad wants another drum but doesnt think his son is capable of building him a drum, and he wants something different.

5. his dad is getting divorced and losing his two drums so he wants something different this time.

6. His dad has a vacation home and needs another drum but not a gateway or hunsaker!

thats it im all out of ideas.

anyone wanna throw in some theories?

Check out RipTangle smokers. Basically a high end square UDS. His team RippelQue places high in most of the St Louis area KCBS comps.

With 3 drums in his backyard it must be starting to look like a toxic waste dump site. How about a nice Shirley instead?

I dont think the details need to be in PM

I believe whitewater was accused of ripping Hunsaker basket and I believe the poster is accusing whitewater ripping off gateway with the intakes

I do believe whitewater did have to redesign their basket

If I were to buy a drum, I'd be getting whitewater, but I'm a MN boy and they're from MN and I dont think their design is as rip off as some

Both drum and basket were awfully similar to patented designs. Hence I know at least one of the 2 had their legal teams contact them. Next thing you know their fb is wiped and then they come back with a big single intake. No originality. For the record I no longer build drums and imitation is the sincerest form of flattery so they say. But wow, at least TRY to do something different.
