Promised that i would post pics of how i'm doing, so here you go.
First of all i got a sealed drum from a mate, so had to cut the lid out.
going to use my weber lid as my lid for now, just got to get an aluminium strip and attach round the inside rim.
drilled 3 holes at the bottom about 20mm for now(divided drum into quarters but only used 3 positions) as i want to put a shelf at the front.Then starting burning out, as of today has been burned out 3 times as i had alot of broken fence panels to get rid of.
just got my stainless steel parts come through the post today, and 2 cans of bbq paint on it's way. Just got to get 2 lever ball valves and still trying to find something for my fire basket.
Will keep you guys updated but is a slow progress as i have 5 kids :)
