Wholly Smokes

We thought about naming this product the D.I.Y.-B.Y.O.B.S., but our test group was spending too much time bumbling over the acronym and not enough time smoking mouth-watering meats and veggies.

After trying the ribs, they suggested we call it “The Greatest DIY Smoker of All Time.”

Boasting a 16 gallon, double open-ended barrel, this kit comes complete with all the drill bits, stencils, and hardware he’ll need to construct a quality smoker by hand, right in his backyard. The only thing we didn’t throw in is the elbow grease.

Get your guy the ultimate D.I.Y., and upgrade his backyard barbecue with the Build Your Own Barrel Smoker Kit.
Barrel-Smoked Bullet Points:

  • This high-quality, 16 gallon barrel is large enough to smoke 4 racks of ribs, or one complete brisket. But why not just make both?
  • With air vents located on both the sides and the top of the barrel, controlling the smoker’s temperature is a breeze. Even in a breeze.
  • We’ve coated the barrel with durable, high-temperature powder coat rated up to 900 degrees, to make sure the smoker lasts for a lifetime of fall-off-the-bone barbecue.

    Impressed

    It took about 4 hours to assemble but I was not in a hurry. I applied sealant to the holes drilled for handles, hooks etc. to button it up. After seasoning I smoked a brisket. I had to separate the point from the flat to allow it to fit. The temperature was easy to maintain. I thought it would be harder to control but once you get the hang of it, it is easy to keep it at 220, 250, 275.
    Quality so far is top notch. Time will tell for how long it will last but for the price I think it was a nice gift to myself.

    Awesome Christmas Gift.

    My wife surprised me with this for Christmas. The important tools are included. You just need a drill and phillips screwdriver. Once i finished building it took close to 3 hr with a couple beer breaks.. I seasoned it with canola oil. First run I made outstanding smoked wings. It's easy to maintain the temp and has plenty of room. I have a larger smoker however this unit functions much better! Excellent product! Thank you for providing quality materials for this project!

    Great!

    Me wife bought me this as a Christmas gift and I couldn't be happier. Easy to build and use. I have smoked ribs, fish, chicken and pork shoulder and can honestly say better or as good as the local bbq joint. Trust me this works just as good as the overpriced smokers. Buy it you won't be disappointed.

    my husbands favorite smoker

    I bought this for my husband to give him something to do. He has used it a few times with wood chips we made from a storm damaged tree. The last time we used it I asked him which one he liked best. We have 2 electric smokers that we have used for years and he said "The barrel smoker!" He likes it best because we get the "Fire" that we don't get with the other smokers. So far the best thing we've made is smoked chicken tinga tacos . Thank you
