Prepping Project - Smoker Barrel

Smoking is a method of preserving and cooking food that gives it a very distinctive taste and flavor that many people find quite desirable in their cooked food. Having a barrel smoker is a great way to add additional flavor to your food.

The picture above shows my ugly drum smoker in the works. My lid has a home-made handle and exhaust vents drilled in the top and the air intake upgrade mounted. I’ve installed three heavy duty bolts to hold my grill grate and have only to decide what type of charcoal basket to put in it.

Here is a close-up of the air intake upgrade mounted to the smoker barrel for a little more detail. It required only 4 extra nuts, washers, and lock washers. It's now solidly mounted to the barrel.

You can find some great recipes and tips and tricks for smoking your food at Blue Smoke BBQ. There are also some great Advantages of Smoking Food.
