I'm not sure about a 55 gallon but I built a 30 gallon recently. Here's my post with all the info. Hope this helps.

I have two drums that currently run on charcoal baskets but I recently salvaged the grill portion off of a foreman outdoor grill. I was thinking it may work and it has the temp control just like an electric skillet. I think I will give it a shot in the spring, maybe with an a-maze-n dust burner a few inchs above the grill.



Good Luck and Please keep us posted with what you end up with.
