Hello,
I love food and the outdoors and bbq incorporates both. looking to move from grilling to smoking and i want to start off right by building my own uds. only thing holding me back is locating a food grade 55 gallon steel drum. i have one but it had resin in it so i would rather not use it. anyway i am almost through with college at forham university and will become a 2nd lt. in the marine corps when i graduate. looking to start getting serious into smoking over this summer break. i hope to look to the brethren to hit the ground running and become an expert.

GO BROWNS!
Mark

Hello Mark, I too am new around here. We are not far apart from each other I live down here in N. Canton. If I here about a 55 Gall. food grade drum I will let you know. Do you know if it can be any kind of drum or does have to be food grade?
Welcome!

hey thanks guys.

Kyle that would be great i appreciate it. it could be any kind of drum but its best if its food grade just so you know its safe for food. otherwise you can burn the drum out a couple of times to sterilize it. i have a drum that contained resin in it and i am debating whether to try and use it, because resin is pretty hazardous.

fishingfool, i live in willoughby, ohio. maybe we could Q together sometime:-o Go Browns!
