I love the simplicity of this.

Will keep my eye out for a 44 gallon drum.

Could just about cook most things in there.  Pizzas are not my thing at all though.

Did it have a door??

Very simple.
If I can find the photo of a similar one I used at a camp in Tassie.
Cooked Lasagne, cakes, crumbles and roasts.
It was made for me and even had a thermometer in the lid that was hinged as a door.

Derek, I asked and it had a lid/cover with a handle on it.

Looks ideal for everything you said Aart Smiley

Interesting post ....had a very large diameter piece of cast iron pipe here for ages , been dreaming for ages of doing something similar with it.
This post gives me food for thought.

I still have a couple of 44 gallon drums in my back shed, have thought of turning one into a smoker but that has not happened, but just as a wood fired oven might he a idea how to use one of them.

I use this bad boy when catering at home alongside the camp ovens. Usually do up to 15 kilos of roasts and or garlic breads. Have catered a few times at home for 100 or so.

Also used it for catering at boys camps. Packs into a trailer along with other cooking gear.

Haven't tried it yet as a smoker. That may happen soon.

Aart are you using heat beads or wood fired.

I've used both John. Not much success with wood. Found that wood needs so much more oxygen and is quite smokey
