    I do have a third rack down above the basket for a water bowl but I haven't gotten a metal bowl yet so I am using a very large tin turkey pan and I have thrown on a 9 lb pork loin just to test this thing and I have to say I love it. It's been holding 225 since I started. I guess the thing I need to figure out is when smoking a brisket or butt to make sure I have enough fuel and wood so I don't have to remove the racks before I'm done cooking

    I am using a threaded rod in the middle of the basket bolted through the bottom and the top I have an i hook so I can use my rod and hook it in the middle to pull it out.

    Hey, that has the same exact bend in it as the last loin I cooked on a drum. LOL But I told the kids that I was cooking a big snake.

    Nice work on the drum.
