Smoker Barrel Gear - The Charcoal Starter

An essential piece of gear you will need for your ugly drum smoker is a charcoal starter. This will simplify the process of getting your charcoal burning. Simply load your smoker barrel's charcoal basket with charcoal and then scoop out a small amount and place it in the charcoal starter. Then fire up the charcoal starter and once you've got some good coals going; put them back in the your charcoal basket and then place your charcoal basket back inside the smoker barrel. Be careful. Use a lot of caution and a good pair of grill gloves to avoid getting burned.

Staying above the water line!

I make mine with an old punch type bottle opener and large metal coffee cans. Punch holes in the coffee can around the top and the bottom, plus two holes for wire coat hanger handle. Works good for two or three seasons maybe even more.
