Hey guys finally got the smokehouse finished and dialed in exactly as far as the cold smoked process going and keeping that smoke flowing just right My first item I did was quite a large brisket and smoked it at about 90° for 20 hours and I couldn't believe I actually made one of the best briskets I've ever had let alone made but anyway let me get to the point. So I buried an oil drum in the ground and now because it's lower than the smokehouse I'm having major drainage issues it's filling up with water every time I get rain anybody have any idea of what I could cover it with I mean I know I can do membranes and stuff like that or trench it away with piping but I don't want to have to do that much work on it and I also want something a little more permanent like a cap or something anything you guys could give me would help thanks again!
