Pigs Pig Barrel is Born

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
I have been working on a couple of drum smokers, one of which I call the Pig Barrel. I thought I'd share the slideshow of it through the process. Once the barrel was done I took it to the Sis-in Law to paint some graphics on it. They didn't turn out quite what I had imagined. But the barrel is born and it is what it is.

I'll be doing some pigcicles in her on 06/04 for the maiden voyage, after getting it seasoned and ready to go.

Enjoy the pics


you will want to watch the slide show in "reverse order"

Excellent work!

Question- what are pigcicles? Are they ribs?

Thanks everyone. I told her what I was thinking about... Pigs flying out of flames with the top looking like one was flying out ... but the rest is the Sis-in-law. I was hoping for a little more demented. But like I said, it is what it is.

Rich, the other barrel has the same basket as this one and it will definitely go 12 hrs ... all ready for a butt or brisket ... shoot anything ya want to throw at it.

I gotta get me one of those. I mean I love my WSM/ECB...but dang... I could go play nine holes after tossing a butt in, hit the pub for a beer and come home in time to mop.

Some days tho, I dearly love tending a fire. As many do.

Me too Rich... but if you like to mess with the temps you can always start playing with the valve and caps biggrin.gif .

I ain't throwing away none of my smokers cuz I got these drums. Just another smoker to choose from, like choosing which ugly shirt is going to make the wife scream the loudesticon_evil.gif

I won't get her too hot ... she's already been roasted once. Just a good coating of oil and an over hot fire for a while.. then on the pigcicles...

Can't believe you'd ask ... "can it cook" ... you know it's gonna cook.

Looking forward to the pics of the first cook!!! cool.gif
