    I have been working on a couple of drum smokers, one of which I call the Pig Barrel. I thought I'd share the slideshow of it through the process. Once the barrel was done I took it to the Sis-in Law to paint some graphics on it. They didn't turn out quite what I had imagined. But the barrel is born and it is what it is.

    I'll be doing some pigcicles in her on 06/04 for the maiden voyage, after getting it seasoned and ready to go.

    Enjoy the pics

    you will want to watch the slide show in "reverse order"

    Question- what are pigcicles? Are they ribs?

    Thanks everyone. I told her what I was thinking about... Pigs flying out of flames with the top looking like one was flying out ... but the rest is the Sis-in-law. I was hoping for a little more demented. But like I said, it is what it is.


    Rich, the other barrel has the same basket as this one and it will definitely go 12 hrs ... all ready for a butt or brisket ... shoot anything ya want to throw at it.

    I gotta get me one of those. I mean I love my WSM/ECB...but dang... I could go play nine holes after tossing a butt in, hit the pub for a beer and come home in time to mop.

    Some days tho, I dearly love tending a fire. As many do.

    Me too Rich... but if you like to mess with the temps you can always start playing with the valve and caps [​IMG] .

    I ain't throwing away none of my smokers cuz I got these drums. Just another smoker to choose from, like choosing which ugly shirt is going to make the wife scream the loudest[​IMG]

    It can ... just as well put some miles on her. Besides if we're going to trade smokers, I'm going to need to have it there[​IMG]

    Nice drum Joe......but can it cook?? [​IMG]
    Been waiting to see this baby, i like the paint job! Be careful not to get it to hot!


    More like 24 hrs with that basket and a quality fuel.....seriously!

    I can't believe you haven't jumped to the drum side yet bro!

    I won't get her too hot ... she's already been roasted once. Just a good coating of oil and an over hot fire for a while.. then on the pigcicles...

    Can't believe you'd ask ... "can it cook" ... you know it's gonna cook.

    I've never used one of those drum smokers, but you can get 12 hours off one basket?!?!

    WOW! I have to build one of those! I'm lucky to get 3-4 hours out of my Chargriller...
