55-gallon drum smoker. This past fall I took an evening welding class at a local technical school and got very excited about making things out of metal.

55-gallon drum smoker

I already had an old stick welder that I didn’t really know how to use, and I ended up buying a MIG welder–the Hobart Handler 140 from Northern. After making lots of small assemblages out of scrap metal I managed to build a stool and a couple of plant stands, but I had bigger plans. There’s something special about creating useful objects. A smoker is a nice combination of supremely useful (preparing sustenance) and slightly frivolous (do you need a smoked pork butt to survive?). There are certainly faster and more efficient ways to cook food, but damn smoked meat is good. I looked around at commercial smokers and custom hacks and talked to a few connoisseurs, and decided the Weber Smoky Mountain was a good design to start from. I printed the curve at full scale and wrapped it onto the barrel, traced the curve, then cut the barrel with a jig saw.

This mod insulates both the cooking chamber and the SFB using welding blanket material. Almost every square inch of the smoker is covered. For the SFB, 700F RTV gasket material is used to affix the blanket material and (because I don't trust the gasket material to act as a strong adhesive) #6 self drilling screws with washers secure the larger pieces.

For the cooker, 500F RTV is used. The welding blanket material came from 3 3'x3' Tillman O-PAN black felt blankets. I initially assumed that I would only insulate the cooker. The Tillman O-PAN black felt blankets are soft and smooth even after exposure to high temperatures. The result is attractive (IMHO) and effective. This insulation process increased my test burn time by about 6 hours -- from 5.5 hours to more than 11 hours.
