rcav, did you build that rig from your own design or follow one on the web? The reason I ask is the boy is interested in building a new smoker and is having trouble finding plans that he likes. Any advice?
It is my own design. I opened the bottom of the drum for the coals and to increase the turn radius for the spit, the foil pans stop flair ups and add moisture. Hard to see in the pics I posted, will try to add more.
