Hillbilly Drum Build

Well got a fair start on the drum taday. Got here burnt out with a 5 million btu turbo torch, ifin there was a linin in there, it sure didn't survive that! Burnt the paint offin the outside to.




After burnin it off I then gave it a good wash out with the powerwasher. Then hit everthin with a 4 inch wire wheel on my angle grinder.

It's sittin over in the small garage with a fresh coat a primer. Tammarraw I will start layout an drillin holes.

Post more pics as it progresses.

Drum build update.

Here's be the drum with a coat a high temp ceramic primer. Got the layout lines on an ready ta start some drillin. I found a seamstress tape measure, one the cloth ones works real well fer measurin on that drum!



Here it be with the rack supports in, I use 1/4 inch x 3/4 inch x 2 1/2 inch u bolts fer the rack supports. Damper nipples er all installed an lock nutted an the meat temp gauge port is installed. Got a lid I'm gonna use fer now, came offin a george foreman electric grill. Will fit inside the rim a the original lid, so can make it work till I find me a weber lid.



Next is ta get the charcoal basket built an the shelf made fer it, then paint an some wheels an she be ready ta go.
