when you cook w/ charcoal do you every put to much? i do. the drum basket is huge for great long burns. well, what about great little burns. i got this.

i took my weber coal holder apart. bent it here and there and waa laa. 1/2 a coal basket for little burns.

i used this for 4 cooks. it works great. i've gotten 6 - 7 hour burns at 220 -250. on a 1/2 coal basket fill 1/2 way. these drums are so cool. i hardly use any coal and keeps temp like a champ.

ok, enough of that. time for tri dogs.

the key to these drums is use only 15 coals. only 15.

Great idea sparky..actually Idea"s". The tri-dogs look awesome. I just might have to borrow your coal holder mod for myself when I finally get a drum.

Greatscott!

That's awesome, love the dogs. I have a tri tip in the freezer... Hmmm...

So to confirm... You're using a half- basket filled half way up and dumping 15 lit coals on top for minion method lighting?
