They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Here is my story book. Old drum that has been waiting on me for a very long time.( after I cut it) Ring cut from barrel.I had to cut the side and overlap the edges and re rivet it to make it fit right. Burning the ring at night. I used three cherry splits. I ended up taking the ring out and smothering the fire. Used the charcoal created the next day for seasoning the ring. Here it is the next day during seasoning burn Don't let it fool ya' the needle has already wrapped around and coming back for more! I will post the pics of the pizza in the appropriate forum, if I can figure out which one that is!
