Barbecue / Smoker

I ended up with two 55 gal Drums used for coconut oil and i needed a barbecue. First i used my drill and a sanding disc to remove the paint from the barrels. I jigsaw cut two half circles in the bottom barrel . Then proceeded to make the cuts for the doors one in the base and one in the top. I then attached the top to the base, this can be done in two ways if you do not have a welder cut tabs in the mental base and screw the top to it, you would need to fill the gaps with some kind of metal filler. welding the two together is another option. From there you just need to attach hinges for the top and bottom door .
put handles on both and screw the grill into place. On the inside you will need to drill holes between the top barrel and the base to allow smoke through. For the vent pipe i took some vent pipe from Home Depot and screwed it into place on the side near a 3 inch hole. That will make you a basic smoker and/or barbecue.
