    Ugly Drum Smoker

    Anyone made one? There are directions all over the internet. I'm thinking about making one soon.

    Ive been wanting to do this for awhile. Theres a place in anderson that usually has a bunch of old barrels, ive just heard alot of ppl say you have to find out what was in it as some stuff will cook on to your food.

    from what I have read if you get a food barrel you have to burn the food grade liner out anyways, so basically any barrell will work if you burn it out.

    There is a place in columbia that sells them for $5 each.

    when it is time to clean teh inside of the barrel use cardboard as the cleaning fire. It burns hotter than wood supposidly. I had a real good fire from that in my smoker. So hot it metled the pot metal hinges :( I thoguht they were stainless steel hinges.

    good to hear

    I had been told to burn unpainted crown molding scraps or new pallets and just fill it full and burn it till its cool and then rinse it out.
