maybe this can help

I have almost completed my smoker from 2 55gal drums. It is the smoker I am using now and as soon as I have time to stop by the store to pick up some more welding wire I can then finish it and paint it.. I will post more pics of it tomorrow. but you can see to make the fire box I cut 1/3 of the barrell off and welded the lid back on it. Then I used the 1/3 material to create bands to take up the gaps at the sides of the lids on both the firebox and the pit. I used 1" by 1" angle on the bottom of the doors and at the base of the opening to make it more rigid... I welded my hinges up like that because I shifted the doors up 1/4" to take the gap out of the top, Now the doors do not bind up.. I can try to draw it up and post the plans I used when I post the pics later. Hope this helps!!!
