With over 3,000 kits sold, dozens of five star reviews, and tons of happy customers - The Big Poppa Smokers DIY Drum Smoker kit is the perfect tool to help you create the BBQ grill of your dreams for less. All you need to add is a 55 gallon steel or stainless steel drum, some power tools, and some elbow grease to create a high-quality BBQ grill and smoker. The Kit comes with all of the templates for drilling, step drill, nuts, bolts, and parts to turn a barrel into a competition grade smoker.  

If you don't want to search for your own 55 gallon drum, we also offer the Drum Smoker Kits with the drum included with free shipping! If you are looking for an option with less hassle, and don't want to drill the barrel smoker yourself, we even offer a pre-drilled Carbon Drum Smoker + Kit so all you need to do is screw everything together, season your smoker, and start grilling. With the ability to raise or lower the charcoal nest, you can smoke, grill, or sear on this backyard BBQ drum smoker! It really is an all-in-one grill and smoker that gives you versatility when you're cooking in the backyard. You can also add stainless steel upgrades, or custom options to your DIY drum smoker, along with a lot of fun grilling accessories for cooking outdoors in the backyard.

If you really want to go big with your Big Poppa DIY Drum Smoker Kit, skip the drilling, and 90% of the assembly, we also offer a partially assembled stainless steel drum smoker. With a stainless steel barrel for your cooker, not only will you have a cooker that is built to last, but you will most likely have one of highest quality smokers in your neighborhood. After you have seasoned your smoker and gotten a feel for it, you can also upgrade parts like the grilling grate and charcoal basket with our "Beefy" Stainless Steel parts, or you could even add an entirely stainless steel rib and meat hanging kit to upgrade to a whole new level of smoking. Vertically hanging ribs, brisket, chicken, sausages, or even pineapples in your smoker will give everything a great smoky flavor that your friends and family will love. 

If you're not convinved a barrel cooker is right for you, we also offer a large variety of high quality grill and smoker models that are made in the USA. While our DIY drum smoker kit is a best seller, we understand that every type of backyard BBQ cook is different. Check out our entire selection of grills and smokers here
