Providing an affordable, competition quality DIY Drum Smoker Kit since 2012.

The Big Poppa Smokers DIY Drum Smoker Kit Pro Package is the ultimate do-it yourself drum smoker kit. The Pro Package DIY Kit includes all of the BBQ accessories you need to get started on the right (smoking) foot -  Featuring BBQ accessories like a Big Poppa Cooking Mat, a Drum Smoker Cover, and so much more, drum smoking has never be easier.

This is a great DIY project that allows you to transform an old food grade drum into a championship quality smoker. You’ll feel proud knowing you built your own fully customizable drum smoker at such a low price!

Big Poppa Smokers recommends buying a food grade drum with an open top (also known as a lid) that has been professionally refurbished, formally used in food service, or new. We care about your safety, so when searching for a used drum - we recommend assuring that the drum was NOT used for any chemical/ammo storage, etc. Select the “Find a Drum” button on the right for more info on where to find a Big Poppa approved food grade drum.

The BPS DIY Drum Smoker Kit - Pro Package includes:

  • Bottle opener

  • Top vent

  • 2 bottom slide vents (Stainless Steel)

  • Grill Cooking Grate (Nickel Plate)

Note: The Big Poppa Circular Non-stick cooking mat is rated up to 500*F and is not recommended for use over direct flame. Grill small or delicate foods on your new drum smoker with ease!

 You will need (DIY Drum Kit does NOT include these):
  • a 55-gallon food-quality drum and lid

We suggest burning out your drum AFTER you drill the holes, but BEFORE you add all of the hardware.
