I want to see your home made 55 gallon drum GRILLS!!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

i am currently in the process of making a 55 gallon drum grill and i need pics/ ideas of the lid options, air intakes and frames

 

i am thinking of making the lid a quarter instead of a half drum cut, how did yall do your air vents?

Well, if you want horizontal, you already have the chargriller.

its not silicone, its some liquid nail type stuff because there were little holes from blowing through and from not having a solid weld bead so i figured i would cover them up but i run a nasty caulk bead so holes ight have been better.
