Please note: The included stepdrill is designed for drilling carbon drums only. In order to assemble BPS Stainless Steel Drum Smoker kit, you will need to purchase a second stepdrill separately, as the included stepdrill may get worn out. This drum kit only includes one stepdrill.

The drum is high quality steel that I know will last me a life time. The instructions were clear and the built went smooth. I love the old school authentic look. I will be building another very soon.
