View Full Version : My Big Poppa Project Pictures

10-14-2013, 06:13 AM
I would again like to thank several folks on this site for their advice as I am very happy with the final result of my Engineered Big Poppa Drum Smoker. Also, I would like to thank Big Poppa for engineering this kit as it is truly well thought out.

I am posting some pictures of the project and of my first cook, a chicken last night.

Great job Bf! How was the chicken?

That's a beauty!

I took the chicken off when it hit 165 and let it sit wrapped in foil for approximately 30 minutes. I had applied a rub and it turned-out fantastic. I look forward to having a chicken breast salad from leftovers tonight!

I have to obtain some stainless polish as you can see the residue left from the hairspray I used to remove the Sharpie Marks. My neighbor and I spent approximately 1 hour yesterday installing all of the hardware. I guess one person could figure out how to do it but installing the bottom vents and bottom ubolts was a challenge this short guy was not up too!

My neighbor thinks the final, finished product looks awesome - like a 55 gallon beer keg!!!!

I misplaced a picture in my Gallery when I was uploading to Photobucket this morning and wanted to add it as it is a good completed picture:

Dang those stainless drums sure are nice!
I'm going to have to sell my drum and scrape up some coin and get one.

Great pictorial Bigfish! Drum chicken and drum tritip are the best!

The stainless is painful when you are buying it but painless when you are using it!
