    My Barrel BBQ

    Well i'm keen to try some American style slow cooked food but i was not happy to just use a oven to cook them, true American style ribs, brisket pork shoulders need a slow cooking for 3 to 4 hrs for ribs and upto 9 for larger cuts ........So here is my smoker.
    ..
    ....
    .....

    I got two barrels off Joe (Ballsac) and got them sand blasted. (auto blast myaree)




    Cut the end off one barrel




    Cut the corners off, quite a lot of trimming was required , this was time consuming.




    test fitting, must of done this 30 times,




    welded them together and ground the welds back (a little) this was only the start.



    Welding, now please note i have done very little welding.



    I have used an old brazier as a fire basket, modified it so its easier to load the charcoal



    Now i added a door to the bottom barrel to allow access to the fire.




    Not finished yet but thought i would post some pics.


    Not finished yet but thought i would post some pics.

    Chasing a few things

    1. Need some material to use as a the rack, must be mild or stainless steel 1.5 x 0.6 m, gridmesh or reinforcement mesh would suit.
    2. about 8m of 25 x 2 or 3mm flat plate, again mild steel.

    Happy to pay, anywhere open today?

    Hit up the salvage yards dude. Most will have random lengths of mesh and stuff.
    Nice job too.

    looking quite impressive so far. once finished give it a lick of gunmetal or black paint and it would look like a store purchased one, if not better !

    Come see me when you want the ribs, I have a dozen full beef ribs hanging at the moment - if you want them this week I need to know TONIGHT, otherwise they will all get cross-cut and marinated for next week.

    Not the usual Antilag spit roast one hears about, but cool. Props for doing it yourself, those are not cheap to buy. Now if you feel like making me a pizza oven....

    Risk10k, at this stage will not need ribs this week, but may hit you up later on. Could you PM me a price per kg and your location.

    few more pics, hope to finish this off tomorrow and Tuesday.

    Handles are on and holes drilled for heat exchange.



    Temperature control (Made this from scratch)



    Things left to do.
    1. reinforce the doors and openings, the drums are a bit flimsy
    2. install grates for the MMMMMMEAT
    3. Paint it High temp paint.
    4. Burn it in.

    Speaking of spit roasts i will add this feature to my bbq. I know why they are expensive.....time time and more time. i think that i have put 30hrs into it so far.

    Pizza oven, that would be a cool project but not this year.

    Seeing as you cant get stainless steel racks off the shelf that are 600mm wide your options are very limited.

    its unbelievably hard to source SS mesh and even thought you can get expanded metal in SS...no one has it.

    so 10mm stainless rod and my trusty arc welder



    I'm not the best welder but you get the idea



    Trim up the rods to make neat racks



    rinse and repeat.

    Drill holes in the bottom of the barrel to transfer the heat and smoke. test fit the racks.



    In the last pic and the next you will note the edgings that i had to put on




    Barrels cleaned and ready for the next stage.



    Painting the barrels in a fire resistant paint





    and lastly a thermometer




    currently burning it in. rock solid on 250deg F
