55 gallon drum uds 001.JPGI  built one out of a 30 gallon drum and just couldn't help myself!

 This one is built from one those patio fire places and a 29 dollar BBq grill for the lid

which fits over the barrel perfect .

Here it seasoning with the tbs. Cant't wait to use it!

Looks good Dave, Your method to attach the wheels is a nice idea. I like it.

 

Incase anyone wonders, my valve is pvc as well as the riser pipe, the elbow and nipple are steel. So far I have had zero problems with heat affecting the riser pipe.
