Doors for a 3 barrel smoker

Post by Felimid » September 12th, 2019, 9:39 am

I am planning on building a BBQ/Smoker from 3 55 gallon barrels but cannot find a place to get the access doors. It will be a horizontal build and I want o have doors opening in the front. I could use another barrel and cut it but wanted something a bit more heavy weight.. ideas?

Don’t think you will find a commercial door for that. If you don’t want to use the cut-out itself, then I would look to a fabrication shop that can ‘roll’ you a door from a sheet/plate of your specifications.

Using your cut-out and welding a flange around the edges should be plenty strong....what are your concerns?
