Wanting to build and looking for ideas

  1. Let me start by saying I could go to wally world and buy a brinkman offset smoker for x amount of dollars, make the mods and be completely happy. But I'm the type of guy that wants the satisfaction of building something myself and using it.

    With that being said, what I currently have is an empty 50 gal drum that contained a non-toxic citrus cleaner. I want to build a smoker/rotisserie grill combination.

    What I have in mind is having the drum sitting horizontal on a rack with wheels. A side firebox for smoking. I also want the ability to use the drum as a large charcoal grill if I wanted to by just putting charcoal in the bottom. And I also want to have a rotisserie rod going vertically through the drum powered by an electric motor on the side.

    Does anyone have and pics of a UDS they have built similar to this where I could get some ideas? I have alot of questions, but I would like to see some examples and get some advice from those that have done this before I get started.
