After reading all the threads about Ugly Drum Smokers, I figured I could build one really cheap.I got the drum free from work, had the Weber lid, grill & and all hardware already at home. Spent $5 on the expanded steel for the charcoal basket and $9 on paint. Total build cost $14 Hardware installed and burning the drum. I did two burns just to be on the safe side. The inside all cleaned up after the burns. Seasoning. All done and painted. Cant wait to use it. I'm smoking ribs tomorrow.
