  1. Hi fellas, My name is Ben I am from Adelaide Australia. I recently was over in the US and fell in love with the way you fellas do BBQ. I work over in a Gold mine in Russia as a mechanic so I figured I would put my hand skills to good use and build a smoker. I had an old hot water system and got it blasted then cut it up and went from there. After lots and lots of research I think it turned out pretty well. Its got a big charcol basket with dividers to use the minion method I put a plate on the bottom to make it reverse flow and made the chimney a little lower in the pit. I have only done dry runs with it so far to learn it as I am going to get it ceramic coated and I want to do all the mods first. I can get about 8-9 hours from a basket at 220, which I think is pretty good! I have been reading your forums for months and cant wait to put some of this theory to test!

    Howdy Ben and welcome to the site! would love to see pics of your build as it progresses- a lot of good ideas get tossed around from the members, I myself built my drum from a 50 gal. pressure tank from a water well, and with my large coal basket can get an all- niter out of it doing the minion method. Glad to have ya here and looking foward to your posts.
