do i want the screw type lid or the handle kind?
If I get the chance to do it again! I mean when.
I would prefer a "lever type" locking lid.
ya i thought the lever was the best unless you put a diff lid on it
Unless you use a Weber lid I would get the Lever Release ring...
broke down on 528 with barrel please bring beer and bacon!!! no bull****
dont want anyone to lose sleep lol hahha made it home with barrel
"Are we having fun yet ?"
Don't forget to post Q-views as you progress with the project. Take care.
that smoker already has a war story......sounds like a great beginning.
ok well my barrel is a food grade barrel but it has the red liner in it, is that bad? i have read you just have to get a real hot fire to get it out? any advise would be great?
thought i read here that is the liner.....i'm sure someone will chime in.
Yes; that is the dreaded liner. You will need to do a real hot burn out or two and then take care of what's left of the liner with a wire brush or grinder with a wire wheel.
My barrel had a liner, Check it out here http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ad.php?t=82003
It took a couple of burns to get it out but it burned right out, no biggie. If I did it again I would drill my intake holes before I burnt the barrel, then it might of got hotter at the bottom of the barrel, some folks have used weed burners, but there is nothing better than havin' a few friends over for a bon fire!
the kicker is i think he had ones with no liner, ohh well hopefully a burn or two will get it out
Bummer, oh well, after two fires and some wire brushin' if there is any left in there it should be fine to cook in after that.
cool i cant wait to get on this new toy
