  2. Nice looking build. Do you have a deflector, or water pan, etc. or is it open straight up from the firebox? I would be interested to know what your temps are like across the cooking grates.

    I like the set up of this smoker for sure. I wish I had the tools and skills to pull that build off myself.
  12. Nice. Can't wait to see it in action.

    Nice looking rig. I had a double stack out of 55 gallon barrels for a few years and it cooked great. Dam nice welding job on that thin metal!. I kept blowing holes in mine but I'm for sure no welder! Can't wait to see some grub off it!

    Nice looking rig........ How's it working for you?
  16. Looks good. How were the results when used?
  17. This^^^  yes because we all want to know. 
  18. II'm also working on a T drum smoker. Are you going to run charcoal/wood for your heat source? If so I'm curious about how easily you can control the temp once it is up and running? Looks great keep up the good work!
