Picked these guys up today, retired pear concentrate barrels. Here in the next week we'll be building atleast two Drum smokers. Like I said in my dad's UDS thread, once I saw his I had to have one. Found these for $20/ea on craigslist locally, the guy gets more drums in all the time so if you guys are up in vegas, PM me and I'll give you the phone number.

Damn. I forgot about this thread.

Went to my dad's house last week and finally burned out my drums. This week I'll bring them home to my place and install the racks and maybe build the fire boxes.

got the grates and handles mounted last night.  gonna do another burn on them today, the upper half on one of them and both lids needs a little more burn time.  hopefully this weekend i'll get thermometers and fire baskets made. pics later.

I can't wait to cook in these things again. I took leftovers in to the guys at work today, they were all pretty happy to see it considering most of them had planned on eating jack in the box for lunch.
