Jay, (Jeremiah) look for some of my brother's posts in this section. (He's Skouson here)
He (we) build a converted 55 gallon drum, into a smoker. Cut the top off, use a Weber
kettle lid, and put 3 vents in the bottom. Gives you 2 grill heights, one at 2 inches below
the rim, and another at 8 inches below the rim. (That's enough room for 6 Boston
Butts, or 10 racks of ribs.) Use the charcoal grate to make a basket, and it will burn for
16 (or so) hours.
PM me, so we can hook up.
