45-55 Gallon barrel - HDBBQ - 05-14-2012 08:25 PM

Hello All,

I'm looking for a 45-55 Gallon barrel to use for drum smoker I'm wanting to tinker around with making a Drum smoker and was wondering if anybody knew where to get one in the Salt lake area.

Thanks,

Ksl almost always has a few listed, just make sure there food grade. Try to get them with out a liner. [/i]

There is a candy store in Heber that sells used ones however you will have to clean out the coating on the inside and it is a pain. I recommend you get a new one from Wasatch.

James let us know what you find out. I wouldn't mind maybe dabbling with a drum as well. I was way impressed with how they build them and use magnets...

Those refurbs from Wasatch are great barrels for the money. They only have a light oily spray inside to prevent rust. I have one sitting out back right now just waiting to come to life. Once it's done, I'll be getting rid of the last of my 22.5 WSM's. I totally love cooking on drums...

Sampson do you use magnets on the intake and exhaust or how do you control the air flow through the drum? I've seen some pretty cool ideas out there...


RE: 45-55 Gallon barrel - Yonni - 05-17-2012 04:42 PM

does wasatch sell metal lids for those drums? mine got warped and need to put a bigger smoke stack in mine
I guess I should just call them myself


RE: 45-55 Gallon barrel - HDBBQ - 05-17-2012 10:03 PM

Yes they do
think it was like 6 bucks for lids or something

Yeah, I've tried lots of other things but to me the magnets work best on the intake. They are infinitely adjustable... I don't use anything on the exhaust.
