What Are Oil Drum BBQs? And How to Build & Maintain Them!
What is an Oil Drum BBQ?
Oil Drum Barbecues, also called Barrel Barbecues or Ugly Drum Smokers, are barbecue grills (or smokers) made using new or recycled oil drums. The drums’ size ranges from 42 to 96 US gallon drums (159 to 363 litres). They use charcoal as their fuel source and are great for smoking meat.
If you have a dog, keeping the meat warm in the grill rack also keeps your BBQ meat from magically disappearing!
