How many different sizes are there?

The one on ebay looks 3 times the size of the one you show?

The air holes look small, may clog when rotated.

When it's empty, put 1/2 ounce of alcohol in there on a paper towel, let vapors accumulate for 30 seconds or so and then light. All the jets should light up nicely :o

lol

Or add motor to track the sun, line the inside with aluminum foil, replace the lid with a glass cover, and make some chicken. An Oops cooker on steroids :)


As for sizes, I don't know. 70gal is enough for my needs though.

Oops will be proud!!! :D

70 gal is big. Do they recommend filling it half way and then process the veggies? Do you turn it by grabbing hold of the air holes or are there hand holes?

This is what it takes to build it :). Looks like something a NASA engineer came up with.



This is what the manufacturers video shows

If it gets too heavy to turn I'll have to train my dog to play with it.
