I have recently acquired a 250 gallon drum and would love to make it into a smoker/grill combo.  The only problem is that I really don't know everything that I need to know about making a smoker.  So if there is anyone the has plans or helpful ideas with rigging one of these bad boys up I would appreciate it.  Its a little late tonight but ill try to get some pics of the drum for better visualization

Looks like an old fuel oil tank.  There have been a number of builds using a tank like that.  As was mentioned in another post, check out the smoker build section and get some ideas. 

Enjoy the Forums!
