The self-tapping screws do not work very well; they strip when attempting to screw them into the barrel, with or without the aid of a cordless drill. They strip in the middle of the process also. To solve this problem, the screws could have a narrower point to get them started easier, as taps do. They could be higher quality steel, i.e. harder than the barrel and then the screws would not strip. However it is, the problem exists and the printed directions, and the manufacturer's comments do not create reality here. It is not reality by assertion.
We solved the problem by going to the hardware store and buying a box of 100 high quality stainless steel screws that did not strip when force was put on them. And they had narrower points to start them with. Assembly time was shorter then. If these screws have some problems later, we can replace them. But we won't have to pry out stripped screws, like the ones that came with the barrel.
Further comments, the cross braces on the bottom, have a flange that is supposed to be turned up to keep it from slipping out as it is inserted in the barrel. However, the flange is wide enough that turning it up makes no difference. And, there is nothing to keep the brace from slipping back out the hole, except a slit in the brace that may be designed to slip into the barrel edge, ... but the slit is in the wrong angle, and does fall back out when the barrel is tipped. Note: also one end of the cross brace has very sharp points, outside of the barrel. I ground them down with my Dremel tool.
Finally, the ash catching pan is not large enough to cover the entire bottom of the barrel, as there are hand hold openings there, if you have concerns in your area about ground conditions.
Once the barrel is assembled and set up, it burns impressively well... and fast. We like it, but I would prefer it to be assembled when shipped or more doable assembly for the average home owner.
Update Nov. 19, 2014
Now that we have had this a while, I decided to change the review from 3 stars to 4 stars because it is a great burner. So if you're skilled in working on stuff like this, I would encourage you to try it.
Update June 20, 2017
Use some canning gloves, or wood stove gloves so when you stir up the ashes for complete burning, your hands will be safe. Have a long stirring rod to get the stuff at the bottom exposed to oxygen. When you stir it, small ashes fly up, so wear something on your head to keep the ashes off.
As with many other reviewers, the self-tapping screws were very difficult to start, even with a corded drill... it took an exceptional amount of pressure (and counter-pressure) to get them to bite into the barrel material, and some managed to strip when partway through. I assembled it in my well-lit kitchen, and tried my best to get it done in under an hour, but it took closer to 75 minutes, and I was sweating from having to apply forces for 60+ self-tapping screws. Bottom line: do a good job and you won't have to deal with problems later.
Also a comment of other reviewers, the metal catch plate that the barrel rests on is undersized, and really ought to be re-engineered. I typically have to reach into the ash pile, in order to locate and grip the pre-cut handholds in the plate. If I've been burning for a while, the pile cascades over the sides of the metal catch plate, when I lift the barrel off.
The instructions say to light the material from the top of the barrel, and that's generally as easy as it gets, from a burning standpoint. I use charcoal lighter fluid to accelerate things, but I also place short 2-by blocks in the bottom of the barrel, resting on the internal "X" brace. They create an open space at the bottom of the barrel, that allows air to come in and burn from the bottom up. I find that I can burn material more quickly, using this approach... and the wood blocks eventually incinerate as well.
I don't think there is a better product available, and this one has worked out quite well for me. I hope the manufacturer reads reviews and continues to improve it.
