and being a smart man, i bet you did the leg welding BEFORE the drum had a fire going in it!!!

unlike some silly boys who decided they could move a hot drum - with fire burning - 1. to a different location and 2. tip said fire into another drum

Washing machine bowls make great fire drums with some legs welded on them, the best ones come out of the old hoover models 720, 820,920 series, they are stainless with a nice solid stainless ring around the top, they are a prick to get out, you need to remove the plastic agitator then undo the 2 bolts, then you usually have to apply a bit of heat with a gas torch or oxy to loosen up the corrosion then with a bit of force they pop out.

An inverted Kenworth brake drum with legs welded on will last forever, and holds plenty of heat.

For camping/drinking in the winter months I've got the inside part of a very old washing machine - it's not real big, but has lots of holes through it and throws out a heck of a lot of heat.
