    I have seen 55 gallon drums cut in half the long way, hinged, with legs,a homemade grate, used over a fire for canning and a grill.

    That's what I want to try to do with it....can....the one I have cut out is about the size of a 5 gallon bucket....I want to put a feed shute on the side (with a cover)...rather than a door. I have a peice of heavy grating for the bottom.

    I'm trying to figure out a way to control the heat better....I'm thinking a large damper at the top....under the canner.

    We'll see....I plan on posting as I work on it.

    I like that may look into getting one. Good idea on making a large stationary one.

    what I'm looking at is making something like the design...only a lot bigger....for canning....we have turky fryer burners...but when the propane is gone.....wood will probably still be around...

    I want to make a large stationary set for canning at the BOL....seems they would work...I might build one to test.
    I do and all I have to say is I sold it. It was way small!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Check into this, I have one and will be posting some pictures in the next couple weeks. It's called the "littlbug" and I like it so far. It comes in two sizes...I have the larger one. Give me a few minutes and I will post something you might find interesting.
