I had a local machine shop craft a face plate diagram.

I'm having my machine shop craft the parts now. It's been a while...

He is planning on using a .25" thick pipe that is 10 3/4" in diameter and will be 14" long for the drum. My concern is that the burner I have is only 6" long and has about 100 orifices and it will not be long enough for an even roast. I'm thinking about putting a sheet of metal between the drum and the burner OR making my own 14" tube burners. What do you all think?

I think that would work great, thinking I need to look for just such a burner for my drum. A burner you can control over a wide range of heat is more important than a longer burner i believe.

I've finally picked up the pipe to use as a drum. It's 1/4" mild steel, 12" in diameter and 14" long. We are just now starting the build.

Post photos often during the build. I hear some of our members love to see roaster parts coming off of the production line!
