Heck anyone can do some nice cooks on any number of inexpensive smokers. I started out with a Brinkman gas smoker. I just recently was looking into getting a new smoker and found these reviews
. I saw the Big Drum Smoker and started researching them and found a wealth of info on building a clone of these drum smokers. Well after the research and collecting a few parts I went ahead and just built my own. I've only done a couple of smokes on it and so far it's went fairly well. As with any smoker it all comes down to temperature control.
Anyone that wants a pretty good smoker that is an easy build and cost near nothing should give it a shot.
Thanks for all the complements.
