Building a smoker/BBQ out of a 55 gallon steel drum. Something about building something myself that cooks meat with real fire makes me feel satisfied at a really basic level.

Got the drum this week and drilled out the holes. Hope to find time to burn it out tomorrow at the in-laws in the country as that size fire may upset the residential area I live in. Here is what it looks like now.

Will update as I do this here and there over the next few weeks.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid was what was in the barrel, it was used to make some kind of weight loss Diet supplement. Smells horrible and looks like it sounds conjugated, going to load it full of scrap 2x4 and burn it out. In hindsight should of waited for a cooking oil drum, just so I wouldn't have to deal with the stink till burn out.

Awesome!

An empty beer keg wasn't available?

The residue from the burned out shit won't be harmful I'm guessing?

Beer keg is much to small, I already have a smoker that size.

From everything I've read a food safe barrel used for consumables is good. That said, the idea is after I burnout and angle iron wire brush I will have the interior down to bare metal.

"UDS Drum smoker" in google gives all kinds of info on what I'm going for.

Should we rename this bad boy to Man Thread v. III? I can't find one started here.

Cool, figured we needed a thread for all of the DIY projects and stuff.

Opened up my A/V receiver to try to see if I could replace the I/R bulb because it doesn't work with remotes anymore. No luck. Opened it up, took off the face, remove the circuit board, and the piece holding the bulb isn't removable at all :(

No banging or duck tape. I still want the receiver working :lol:

I managed to put it back together and it still works :p

I need to learn how to use a soldering gun, but I probably won't go touching circuit boards with it. Condos aren't the greatest place to learn how to use tools. Using one of the two power tools I have(drill and heat gun), I managed to burn a hole in my couch.

Got the drum burned out last night. It was a big fire, that said was tough work sitting around throwing wood in it and drinking a couple of beers. :D

Over the last few years of projects it is surprising how many three feet and under hunks of scrap 2x4, 4x4, and 2x6 I produce both in end cuts and demo pull out.

Found a used receiver on craigslist and got it for $110. Does what I need it to(4 optical inputs, some component inputs, and IR still works). I don't use my receiver for video, but I wanted the opticals because all of my audio goes into it and the setup right now that I have with an optical switch into one port on my receiver is kind of annoying.

Wow taking the grinder to the interior of the drum was dirty business. Other than the eye and breathing protection area I was pure black. Gave it a paint job and added the hardware this week, will finish the charcoal basket tonight then give it a seasoning burn this weekend and it will be ready to use.

Very happy with how it's turned out thus far, barring any performance issues which I don't foresee as the specs are tested and very basic.

Well done and fired it up today to test the heat control and to season it.

Run great, dialed in the temp and been running three hours now locked in between 235 and 245.

Nice job man! I remember how pumped you were talking about building it. Awesome that it's done!

And by the way, that picture over that bed totally looks like a dude fucking a black dog. You weirdo.
