The people I build for love them
Great quality and great look
Love this cooking grate
Perfect fit and function
These uprights are amazing. They are heavy duty and fit the drum very well. Very easy to install as well. I definitely recommend these uprights from smoker builder along with all of their other products.
Fast shipping awesome people hope to visit smoker builder in person one day!
These people make some kick ass stuff. My build so far has been flawless. Super satisfied.
I’ve been around grilling n smoking for over 30 years. I’ve owned just about every kind of smoker there is... Except the drum.
I’ve had ( and still have many ) Electric, Gas, Pellet, Offset stick and reverse flow to name a few.
I decided I wanted to try a drum. I started researching all the drums I could. Then I came upon the Draftmaster from Smokerbuilders MFG.
There is no other drum like it out there. It easily handles concerns about hot spots and consistent cooking results I had. The system channels all intake air to the bottom of the extra heavy duty basket. Combined with a user tuneable heat diffuser plate, That not only provides even heat distribution and flow, It increases efficiency for extra long cook cycles.
Shipping was prompt, Assembly easy. And what caught me instantly was the quality of the cuts ( CNC Plasma) and the thickness of the metal used. All nuts n bolts are stainless steel. This thing is made to last! Being new to drums I had a few questions. Frank and Tom were always eager to help with any and all questions. These guys know us and know smokers. I’ve got at least three dozen cooks over the last two months in my drum and I couldn’t be happier! Flavor is awesome, Burn rate is steady and easily controllable. Your gonna start seeing these drums at competitions everywhere!
Worked really good. Could not be more pleased with my first build. Thanks for the support with my questions
Works great! The original wasn't even close to displaying the correct temp. Quality made and accurate. What more do you need?
All of the parts are clean cut and precise fit. Everything arrived (including the barrel) in perfect condition.
Great built, very helpful and friendly customer service. Highly recommend
Piece of cake to build.Finished with VHT Flameproof in clear and flat black.This thing holds temp perfectly!Highly recommend building one for yourself!
SOLID!Built like a tank and rolls smooth!Keeps Draftmaster close to the ground making it the perfect height for me to reach in!Highly recommend getting yourself one if you’re less than 6’ tall.Best part is no extra holes to drill!
After receiving the guage, it was very impressive with the shinny stainless steel surrounding a large 3 inch dial. I couldn't wait to install it on my twin smoker and "give it the test". I built a fire in the fire box after easily installing it into my 1/2 inch (npt) opening and watched the analog needle do it's thing. I did question the reading and felt that the guage was a little off from what I thought the temperature inside the chamber should be. I went and got my digital guage with probes and put the probes inside the cooking area near the 4 inch probe protruding from the new guage. To my surprise both the digital, and the new analog guage were reading the same temperature, I was sold... I did buy 2 guages (twin cookers) and both gauges did the same thing. If the analog guage had been off, I would have probably adjusted it with the adjustment screw in the back of the guage. I've used other gauges and this guage is great, I need to buy two more of these for the twin warmers.
Easy to install and the thermometer fit right in
Easy to install and adjust
Very easy to install and adjust
Frank and the crew knocked this one out of the park. Not only is the grate cosmetically appealing, it is built like a tank utilizing 1/4" thick material that shall last me a lifetime.
Excellent quality metal and easy to put together.
Good quality temp gauges
Worked perfectly. Thanks for the help Frank. Super fast shipping!!!
Works as it should. Super fast shipping. Thanks Frank.
Don't mess around, at first I thought that this stuff was too pricey .. well partner....ya get what you pay for. There are some parts that are just to much of a pain to fab yourself and get the high quality you want..The way they curve then weld this part to fit the barrel is nothing short of AWESOME! I am making a traditional tandoor oven for my wife ,for mothers day. this part made the job so much easier....this company reminded me of the old spaghetti westen "The ,quick, the dead,and the ugly" only substitute "The quick(service),the functional(easy-pesy to install)and the beautiful(looks great, like a pro job) ..I don't give 5 stars ,but this is as close as it gets4.9999 .

Quality made product . 1/4 steel as stated . Fast delivery .Satisfied with my purchase Thanks
This handle will out last your drum! The craftsmanship is excellent. I will definitely continue to do business with Smokerbuilder MFG.
Great product even better service! Guys always willing to help out. Shield was super easy to assemble. While in use had no temp swings. Awesome awesome!
Got my smoker, used you tube video for assembly. Went together very quickly, nice having the template for drilling holes. Paint is happening this week, can’t wait to get this puppy fired up!
Thanks Frank and Tom!
Would definitely recommend this kit with the barrel add on no worries about finding a barrel and cleaning out and getting the junk out . with this it’s just following the the template and having a common knowledge of laying things out and marking it up and measuring everything twice if you can do that you can build this kit with ease and save a ton of money
Been patiently waiting for you guys to come up with a product to hang ribs and chickens from and you definitely delivered. Compacts down for easy storage, installs in seconds and didn't effect my cooking temperatures despite being right under my center exhaust. I was able to maintain 300°F during a chicken cook without any issues. Now I'm going to have to see how many racks of ribs I can hang from it.
Everything is great and our build turned out great. Thank you
I ordered the Draft Master kit with a drum and the low profile drum dolly. All the parts are precision made and very heavy duty. Order arrived at my local FedEx, very well packed. Easy to put together with provided template and youtube video. I was short a couple of nuts, and the company shipped pit a few extras to me right away. Great product and great service.
Very nice stacks, well made and heavy duty. Very functional and they look great on the drum smoker!
