I know smoknrookie has be askin for some inside pix so here they are with the gill grate lifted out.
Drip pans look nasty but do the trick! Apple cider is the best!
I have to admit the grill looks awesome. I do have some question thought since I am going to be building a 55 gallon drum smoker myself. How far is the door sidings from the edge of the barrel? I almost have the blueprints for mine completed, however I am not sure how far away from the edge to make the doors. Any specification help will greatly be appreciated.
