Also, can I get away with only one 1" air intake or will I need more intakes.

I checked out Home Depot and they sell stainless steel chain. I priced it out to about $12.00 total for what I would need. I wanted to try chain since it would give me an adjustable grill height and limit the amount of holes I put in the drum. I would like to weld, but I don't know how to.
you can't go wrong with stainless steel.
If your idea is to roll the chain onto a spool at the top, you might want to consider steel cable as well as chain. It's easy to get 100's of pounds of strength in small diameter cable so it's easier than chain to wind up.
