I got an email from Big Poppa's about that.  It is an easy and fairly inexpensive way for someone to get a really good smoker.

I wonder what the bottle opener is for?  I guess they figure you're gonna need a beer while you assemble it.

The negative is there is no ash pan. After each smoke youll need to clean the ashes out somehow. Shop vac, mini broom and dust pan or? Besides that its a decent kit I bought one for a build I did.

I used the cut out from the top of the drum to make an ash pan for mine. Formed a lip around it with a hammer and drift then secured it 2' or so below the charcoal basket with bolts and spacers. Works great.
