She needs wheels and a handle for the lid (and a beer opener), but other than that she works!! Held 225 for quite a while. Opened her up full throttle and thought I'd have to call the fire dept. I guess you can polish a turd.....:becky:

Hey Guys, been reading this thread for weeks now. I finally found a food grade drum with no epoxy inside, and after bringing it home I noticed it had a gold tint on the inside, almost like a clear coat. It originally held concentrated lemon juice. After grinding it a bit, it comes off as easy as the paint outside, but obviously a pain. Will the first burns take care of this? I'm looking into getting it sand blasted by a buddy of mine, but was wondering is this why everyone says the first burn is so important? Sorry if it's on here somewhere I haven't seen it.

Thanks

^^^^I would get it sand blasted if you can, then wash it out good and season it. No need to burn it out, after the sand blasting. The coating must be a rust inhibitor of some kind. You sure it's not a tan liner? They do come off easier.

Here is my UDS with the Guru hooked up.

Guamaque 04-02-2011 07:37 PM

More pics ! :-P

So I'm curious if any brethren have put a hinge on the flat lid that some UDS's come with? I've seen plenty of pics of domed lids w/hinges but none with flat lids. Will it not work?

I think you need a couple more thermometers.

Guamaque 04-02-2011 08:36 PM

I know, I had them already from another grill so I put all the thermometers on , what the heck. lol.

That's not a UDS, it's R2D2!

Guamaque 04-02-2011 08:59 PM

I know, I thought about decking it out like that, but lost my steam. I basically tried something different than the norm. Instead of adding the weber kettle lid to the top, I said heck, I'll add the bottom. My lid is the weber kettle bottom. The reason was that it is much heavier and holds the heat much better than the lid does. It sits on perfectly and with the added dome height I can place the grill higher and get a better smoke. I added a home depot style vent through the hole on the top.

No, that's a UR2D2.
