FAQ Subject: Making a smoker from a metal garbage can
Where can i find more info on making a smoker from a metal garbage can ?
Please don't. Metal garbage cans are coated with zinc, a toxic heavy metal, that begins to produce poisonous gas at a little over 400°.
But, just for guys like you, I put chapters on design considerations, construction materials, illustrations and plans for several made from 55 gal. drums in "The Great American Barbecue & Grilling Manual" along with questions to help you define your needs and it teaches how to get the maximum pleasure with minimum effort our of whatever you choose to build.
