A buddy and I recently came into ownership of 6 55 gal drums that need to be burned out still. I originally was going to build an offset horiz, but after all the reading I am wondering if vertical is better. We have access to a stick welder but neither one of us are pros by any means, just rough amateurs. We have the bases figured out already if we go horiz. Your thoughts if you were in my shoes?? I am looking for biggest bang on a cheap budget and minimal fabrication skills. I am currently using a small horiz off set wally world special with decent success but I have only been smoking for a couple months. I was going to just buy a WSM or a GOSM but I like the thought of building my own.
