Mmmmmm, smokers.

Let's see, you've got your smoked turkey, smoked steaks, smoked chicken, smoked rack of lamb, smoked ribs ...



I've gotta stay out of the Good Eats forums or I'll lose it!

Just saw this on facebook

Mrs. :eevis: 2 perfect 55 gallon drums + 1 busy smoker-building husband = 1 smoker for the lake and another smoker for the house, thus bringing our smoker/grill count to 5.....I think Lee may need a BBQ intervention

She loves it

Well, got the first one finished after a few delays. Brought it up to my parent campsite for a trial run of a couple of fatties.




Of course I had to watch it to make sure it was running right!



After the cook and dinner, got to get a little time in with my little man, doing one of our favorite things!



Looking forward to my first big cook, sorry for no food pics

It got even better the next moring. Nice calm lake, went out in my parent paddle boat, got 8 bass including a 21 incher, which is real big for that lake! Followed up by a real nice suprise of pancakes and bacon, a great follow up to some hungover fishing!

THe way I do it is find a food safe 55 gallon drum. Make sure that it has Only contaied something that is safe to ingest. THe ones that I get contained fruit juice concentrate.
I then drill four 1.5" holes three inches up from the bottom, which will then be used for the vents at the bottom for temp control, i just get caps to close them off. ANd then drill 3-4 holes of the same size in the lid
Then I burn them out twice to get rid of the exterior paing and the interior liner. I usually break down a pallet each time, since I get them free up the street.

Next drill 3-4 holes at the about 26-28" from the bottom. You will then use this holes for the bolts that you will use to hold your cooking grate. THese drums hold a 22.5" weber grate perfectly

Also I drill a hole that i place a thermometer in.

you can either get some hig temp paint for the outside, or like i do, two coats of high temp grill paint, and then add regular metal paint for the color. It seems to hold real well.

in the bottom of the drum, it put 2-3 fire bricks that i put a charcoal grate on, also from a weber kettle. and get a couple of pieces of expanded steel and create a ring that sits right on the grate. THis is going to hold the charcoal. It is usually about 12-15 inches tall. Mine can hold about 10lbs of unlit coals, plus a chimney full of lit coals. Add a handle to the lid and you are are set to smoke. I can usually get about 10-12 hours of 250* cooking out of the 10lbs plus the lit chimney!

Just make sure that any hadware that you use is stainless steel and not zinc plated, as zinc fumes ain't the healthiest thing for ya!

If you have any questions, PM me. Enjoy!
