Drum template

Post by KenV » April 24th, 2013, 10:52 pm

I was going through some old pictures tonight and found this template that I built my first drum from in 2008. This was made by a guy on another forum. It is a divided circle and works great for laying out all of your holes.
Image
The colored points are as follows.
3 green are your air inlets 2" off the bottom
4 blue are your grate support bolts approx. 7" down from rim.
8 red are your 1/2" exhaust holes if you choose not to go with a single 2" exhaust in the bung.
4 purple are for handle placements on the lid, I just use one located in center.
I printed off the template and then took it to Staples and had them enlarge it to 22-1/2". Lay it on the lid and use a straight edge or string to transfer the marks for the intakes and grate bolts.
If anybody wants a higher definition copy I can email it to them in a PDF file.

Thanks, Ken. :kewl:


BBQ is just smoke and beers!
Usually more beers than smoke.
