Any opinions or personal experiences using a Pit Barrel Cooker? Looks interesting, seems to get some pretty good reviews.
lmfao. Just go get a fucking barrel and drill some holes in it, then run some rebar through it.
I love seeing products like this. People making tons of money off of shit that is basically worthless, but your average American is too lazy or retarded to make things themselves anymore
Yeah, I'll first spend however much on a clean new barrel, or buy an old one and spend however much deconning it, then buy all the necessary equipment to drill holes in it, then buy the rebar, then buy the equipment to cut that down, and holy fuck I just turned a one-time $300 purchase into a $1000 month-long project.
>$1000 month long project
Holy fucking shit, you must honestly be braindead. You can get a nearly new 55 gal drum (not that it needs to be new for this purpose you fucking idiot) for like $30. My neighbor has like 20 of them that he gets from various places. Rebar is practically free you fucking idiot. And are you seriously a man and you don't already own a drill?
Christ, dude. Just fucking chop your nuts off right now. You're just trying to justify making a stupid purchase on a product that was designed to con idiot beta males like you who can't /diy/ anything themselves
>decontaminating a barrel that won't be in contact with food
>thinking you need special equipment to drill into a thin steel barrel
>rebar is cheap as shit
>you can cut rebar with a hacksaw
>confirmed for never having been in a shop ever in his pathetic cakeboi life
I think I can do it without any tools, assuming I am allowed to scrounge the woodlands for wood and a rock.
Heat the end of the rebar and pound it with a rock to make the end pointy. Use the pointy rebar to poke holes in the drum. The rebar might end up being longer than necessary, as I can't think of a easy way to cut it to length, it would be doable with enough heat and rocks, but not worth the effort.
>uh oh, looks like I'm a retard, and they all pointed it out
The right tools will make for a cleaner job. Surely a neighbor would let you borrow a drill and hacksaw? I'd also try to get sawsall and cut a door near the bottom if you decide to add fuel/wood during your smoke/grilling. Home depot should have some small latches and hinges for the door
Not for you I suppose.
My ex-step-father fucking loves his. He tries to use it all the time. 300 might be a lot for some people but not everyone is inclined to purchase a barrel and go through the metal work to create their own for a fraction of the price.
I can confirm that it makes amazing food, dudeman says its really easy to use so.
>Not already owning multiple power tools, hand tools, welder and an array or fixtures and fittings.
Are you gay ?
That's a weekend project. Build on Saturday, smoke on Sunday.
