Big fan of the Weber cubes myself.
Thanks for the tips!

Finally some more progress.
Again, one of the challenges I gave myself was to make this a nearly free cooker.
I had some scrap metal accumulated that I didn't have a plan for.
A buddy saw it and asked about it. Told him to take it and oh by the way, you wouldn't know where I could find a 55 gallon drum with a removable lid, would you?
It'll be here Monday.
I need to get to work on my fire basket!

The shiznit's getting real!
I think I have everything now for the build except for high temp paint and sealant including material to build possibly 3 styles of fire baskets.
Think I'm going with a 14" round expanded metal design.
Total budget to date $0.
Hopefully I'll get some time this weekend to get some work done on it.

Minor progress.
Spent the first actual money.
$4.64 for the conduit locknuts for the intakes, a 1" knockout seal per Thirdeye's suggestion and a 1/2" UF cable connector for the temp probes.
Tried to pickup a propane weed burner at Harbor Freight yesterday but they were sold out.
Should have more by Tuesday.
Meanwhile, I'll keep working on the basement bathroom rebuild.
Not nearly as fun.

Some more minor progress.
Actually the last obstacle.
I picked up a weed burner but am having an issue with it.
I remember seeing a discussion on here regarding the weed burner's required flow rate not getting along with the nanny valve on the propane tank.
I can hear a clink sound from the tank when I turn the valve of the torch on.
I've tried all 3 of my propane tanks, same issue.
What is the workaround??

Mine connects directly to the propane tank, no regulator, just a needle valve on the torch.

Mine is the same setup, thirdeye.
I reverted to something I hate to do.
I read the directions.
I was opening the valve too fast and the nanny valve was shutting me down.
Followed the directions and unleashed hell! 500,000 btus!
Made a bunch of progress on the bath project today, tomorrow is my last day off for Thanksgiving, so I think I deserve a day to work on this project instead.
Not sure if I'll get the fire basket done, but should get the barrel burnt out and the holes drilled.
