Hello all, I've been reading this forum for several months now and finally decided it was time to build my smoker. I acquired a food grade drum for $20 which used to hold peach puree. I should have listened to everyone and just had the thing sandblasted but instead I ended up doing multiple burnouts followed by 4 hours of grinding! I decided to go with the kit from BPS as it would greatly cut the time needed to fetch and build components. In any case, here she is all completed. After Seasoning the drum, I threw on some birds... Very tasty!
