    Did you paint the drum on the outside?
    I'm a wanna build one but the head office is balking. :loco: :crazy:
    Thinks the paint will burn off the outside.

    It's gotta be green. Stove bright has an emerald green that should work.

    I've only used black acrylic enamel and built a dozen of them ...it will not burn off if your fire basket is the right size
