i was driving down the road and saw a old char broil grill with no legs on the side of someones house. no one was home so i went back later talked to the owner. told him i was making a smoker and if he was going to through the grill away i woul be more than happy to take it off his hands. turns out he was going to do the same thing a couple years ago just never did, he told me i could have it for free. i was so stoked i gave him $5 anyways.

my friend wanted to build one for cheap as well. found another free drum great. first problem red liner but what the heck it was free continued with build in hopes it was a diffrent type of red drilled all holes filled full of crates set on fire drank beer and kept feeding the drum crates. 9 hours later time for bed. next morning checked on drumliner, it was still their. i cant beleve it. but the fire at least broke the liner down enough to use sand paper and a wire wheel to get it out but its going to be some work
