Why Charcoal Drum Smokers?

You can cook the classic 4 Barbecue meats of brisket, pork butt, pork ribs and chicken in the hot and fast style which this pit excels at. Imagine being able to put a brisket on your DrumBo before lunch and it being ready to eat for supper with friends and family. Or you can use the optional Sear Stack, turning your DrumBo into a kettle grill  to cook your burgers and wings to enjoy while watching the game. And don’t forget dessert. DrumBo smokers are grate at cooking anything that can be cooked in an oven.

Charcoal drum smokers are the best way to get that “ Real Barbecue taste” into each and every bite. The flavours will make all your friends want to stop in when you say “the meat is done already.”

Cooking over “live-fire” guarantees a great bark with real tenderness, all controlled by you and your DrumBo.

This pit is straightforward and easy to use. No gas, no power, this drum work everywhere you are. If you can light a match you can light a DrumBo. 

DrumBo is priced to enable you to enjoy cooking Hot and Fast on a budget. No more figuring out the exchange rate to purchase from the U.S. No more excessive freight charges. 

Built from Canadian steel, by Canadians.

No surprises with duties or extra taxes.

If you don’t see the colours you like, give us a call or direct message us  and we will create a one of a kind DrumBo for you.
  •  By shipping “depot to depot or to a business” we can keep shipping costs from getting out of control. We can also ship straight to your door but it does cost a little more.
  • We proudly make DrumBo in Wainwright Alberta so we can completely control the quality and build standards. We stand behind and in front of each and every DrumBo so you can feel confident in your purchase for years to come. If your DrumBo develops a concern just call, text or email us and we will get you sorted. We cannot warranty the paint and decals because we have no control on internal temperatures of the DrumBo. (No worries, we will advise you how to control your temps to prevent damage.)
  •  We actually cook on these pits in all seasons(check out our videos on youTube) and have done for years. If you have a cooking or operating question, call, text or email and we will answer you. Guaranteed.
  • Lastly, know that when you purchase a DrumBo you get Matt 780-812-8977 and Alex 780-842-0960 for total support.

Each DrumBo is the result of countless hours of testing and tweaking to get each one to be uniquely yours. Almost all the components and part are laser cut and individually fitted to give each DrumBo a handcrafted, one of a kind feel.
