    They are interesting, and fun to use. I don't know of any specific drawing plans, but we're working on some basic drum build info for folks.

    Do you have a drum waiting to go?

    No plans, but the concept is pretty basic. Steel drum. Coal basket on the bottom with about 3" of clearance from bottom of drum for ash. Cooking grate about 22-24" above coals. Intakes/exhaust. Exhaust should be about 2x intake. On mine, I used 2 1" ball valves for intakes and have 4 1" exhausts...

    Here is the STICKY on the forum page. Great "HOW TO" I follows and it worked just fine. I posted pix of my build here on this site. Search my previous post.

    There are several different basic measurement drawings for 3 sizes of drums, with flat lids and with kettle lids on my web site. They are on the first pic page. Maybe they will help you.
