With all things outdoors related – and many things NOT strictly outdoor related being camo painted these days, I decided to “Color me Happy” on a cooker for the camp. The cooker itself is a galvanized 55 gal drum with a door cut in the front, aluminum angle rails added inside to hold the cooking rack, which is a three piece grill from an old gas grill that died a natural death. The frame to hold it used to be the top piece of a “homemade”tuna tower on my old 31 Bertram. This part has the instrument panel – which will be a food prep counter – and the box underneath which can be used for storage. The pipe is 2” thick schedule aluminum. It was painted with High Temperature BBQ pit paint.
There is also another barrel that mounts beneath the main one to be used as a fire section when doing slow smoking.
