:kewlpics: Great lookin' meal there, Tocayo! I'd love some of that salsa right about now. I haven't had a salsa fix in at least 3 days. I could go for some of those BEPs, too!

Heck, just a plate of everything. Better make it 2 and save me a trip. :msn-wink:

Glad you liked the pics. It was a great time. My dad wants to do it again in a couple weeks.

As far as the apron goes.................April Fool's!! But you just never know!!

I finished that drum a few weeks ago and that was the 2nd cook on it. Man, talk about a whole different smell and taste. The grease drippings create a whole new smoke and flavor as they hit the coals!

Well, my mom's the salsa queen. We grow our own tepin peppers and that's what we use to make our red salsa. Tepins are little fireballs about the size of a green pea. It takes thousands of these little guys to fill up a quart size ziplock even half way once you dry them and grind them down. But one tablespoon is all you need. They rank up there in heat with the habanero.
The red is basic, stewed toms, onion, garlic, cilantro, tepin powder, salt and pepper, and my mom's secret ingredients. She won't even tell me what they are.

The yellow was roasted yellow japs, and roasted onions and garlic along with salt and pepper. Both salsas get tossed inot the blender to mix.

These are the tepins we grow. Ours is the Texas variety. I have 8 plants at my house and my folks have closer to 10 or 11.

I guess the idea is if the glass looks straight, it's time to stop drinking. :roflmaoha0:

This reminds me of those peppers you sent at Christmas. Great flavor, but I want to try and see if the seeds'll grow.

Sheesh, the wife'll think I've gone nuts.

Those are the same peppers Sandman. Now's the time to plant them. THey require very little care.

We need to know more about the Weber mod to the drum. It looks like a Weber side shelf cutting board. have you modified a weber to fit inside the drum?

Need Pix!

It's a long story and the pics are at home.

I took an old 22.5 and cut the top rim of the coal bowl about 3 inches from the rim. This rim or flange sits inside the drum. You can see the kettle grate is intact with the kettle ring.

I used a drum that had a banded lid. I cut out the inside circle of the lid and kept the lid lip so that the band would still fit securely. I put the band back on and the kettle lid fits over the kettle ring and is held in place by the drum band. The table is my old kettle table. I never really liked the way it worked on the kettle so I cut it to fit the drum.

There are some drums out there that will fit the kettle lid perfectly. Mine didn't so I had to do some mods.

I'll post some pics in a few.

Rex, that all looks real nice. Damn nice!!

Now, where can I get an apron like that? I'd need a 3XL. I plan on giving it to the SmokyOkie. :smack: :roflmaoha0:

I wasn't able to get the pics from the build last night. Maybe these will give you an idea. Try not to concentrate on the meat too much.
In this pic you can see the metal band from the drum and the lip of the kettle charcoal bowl along with the grate. I cut the bottom of the bowl out and only left the top 3 inches. THis is the flange or kettle bowl ring. To give you an idea, there are 3 tabs in the kettles that hold up the grate. The cut I made goes about 1 inch below those tabs. I left them so that they could serve their original purpose. This ring gets dropped into the drum.
You will also see the drum band and the small gap or channel in between the band and kettle lip. That channel is where the lid fits into. It fits almost perfect and with no gaps. The drum band keeps the lid from sliding off and helps the kettle ring sit up higher. If the band wasn't there, the kettle ring would fall all the way down into the drum.
Under the drum band, is the lip from the original drum lid. This drum lid lip also needs to be there so that the drum band won't tighten all the way. If it tightens all the way the kettle lid won't fit at all.

The charcoal basket was just a 12 by 12 all the way around made out of expanded metal. These designs are not my own. I borrowed the lid, and flange idea along with the bottom vent tab designs from some members of another board I belong to.

It would be a whole lot easier to link you all to the threads that are on that board, but I don't know what protocol is for linking to another BBQ board. If a mod can tell me whether it's okay, I'll provide the links.

This pic shows the band, gap, and kettle lip. The metal you see in the gap is the lip from the old drum lid. They are assembled in this order: Drum, then drum lid lip, band, and then the kettle flange.

Hope is makes sense.

It's always good to see kids playing well with other in the sandbox.
