my youngest son recycles and sells IBCs (Totes) but I don't think he's ever messed with the Drums ?

Wow, you have the makings of a honky hangi. That drum is exactly like mine even with the ratchet locking lid. How do you use your drum. I will post a pic of mine when I go outside . It's the same as yours but mine has about 6 inch legs where a double burner fits under. About six inches from the bottom is 4 welded toggles that hold a metal x. Approx 4 inches from the bottom on the side of the drum a hole is drilled 3mm from memory. So you fill the drum up with water to the hole level.put the perf grate in the drum then stack meat on it. I do a whole leg of lamb a big piece of beef, a rolled shoulder of pickled pork. Then on top of that I use a basket with 3 chickens and a pillow case with peeled vegetables potato sweet potato pumpkin carrots. Seal the lid and light gas burner under the drum. When water starts spitting out the drilled whole allow 3 hours and then your food is all ready. We call it a honky hangi because its the white guys lazy way of doing a hangi. The Maori do the original hangi in the ground. It takes ages from start to finish so someone came up with the drum. I do it once a year for my family and friends. It feeds around 25 people. Simple and easy. Drink while its cooking. Meat is so tender it's not funny.
A must try.

Wow Russ, that sounds pretty cool.

This will eventually be an ugly drum smoker. Fire basket on the bottom for charcoal & wood chunks. A diffuser plate and a couple of grates up to smoke the meat. I'm looking for long burn times for the days I don't have time to fiddle with my stick burner.

Forgot to mention that the lid is secured and the drum just acts like a pressure cooker and the hole in the side is the vent for the steam to escape and stop the drum exploding,lol
