Hello from Nor Cal

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello all, I have been looking around here for a couple days
and have found lots of good info. I have a home made vertical
55 gal barrel a friend made into a smoker for me. Its kind of ghetto but it works well. All the neighborhood kids won’t stop coming around for BBQ. Then they go home and ask why there dad’s $1000+ propane grill can not out cook my 55 gal drum. I have also started learning the art of using Dutch Ovens. They sure make good cobblers.

This Saturday I will be smoking some cheese, and then some chicken. Then on Sunday some pork of some sort.

Hey Mike, welcome to the forum. I've been interested in making a drum too. Just haven't found one locally. May have to end up buying a drum and giving it a try.
