welding is just another tool like screws or rivets. why is it so unfair? for example - if you need to install a hinge and it's welded as opposed to riveted, you're out of the contest? what's the difference? i don't have a rivet gun; does that mean that riveting is not allowed?

just playing the devils advocate here, no offense intended...

Well I picked up four Drums today.
$16 and they are all in good shape. They all come with lids and locking rings. They had some sort of fiberglass foam spray in them before. There is little residue on the inside but it comes off with you fingernail. I will use my friends pressure washer to get them all cleaned out. Then I'll burn them out with either a weed burner or most likely just get a roaring fire going in there.

Living in Fl and only being 6 or 7 miles from the Ocean and a mile and a half from a saltwater river, rust will definitely be my main concern.

Big game, where'd you get the lids for $13?

not lids. the grill grates were $12.98 at big r's.PDT_Armataz_01_18.gif

Don't know what Big R's is. Is that the Weber Kettle grate you got or a knock off. Im thinkin of buying the $22 job from Walmart. Havent been able to locate a used Weber yet.

I believe home depot has them for around $15 right now in FL.

I've got a wanted ad on craigslist right now looking for a cheap drum, if I can score one in time I'm in for the buildoff.
BTW if anyone in the Tampa/St Pete area knows where I can get a drum I would much appreciate it, maybe even willing to give some cherry chunks for a good lead.
