thanks for the inspiration
 
Decided i wanted to make a uds so i went and got my drum. went all will nilly and cut the lid off then decided i wanted a flat lid and didnt want to do all the burning and whire wheeling needed to clean an oil drum so i picked up a food grade drum with lid and band for 25 bucks .. it had pinaple in it... so in the morning i am going to start making mine.. i will take pics but i am giong to skip the mundain stuf like burning it out cleaning and so on.. there are 1000's of pics of that on here....

think i am gonna go with the military theme for mine to pay tribute to all my family members that have served out counrty....


will update later this weekend but now off to watch yukon men..

so you had a nice drum with bare metal and you opted to get a food grade drum with an epoxy liner to save time and trouble?

Do you have a lid to fit the first drum, a Weber 22.5" kettle lid perhaps? If so I'd just clean it out real good and proceed from there. Much easier then removing an epoxy liner.

i have a dome lid but is from some other no name gril i was gonna use it but that is my grillin grill.. so i dont want to beat it up plus i like the look of the flat lids i want to put some chrome stacks on it.. beeing a trucker an all chrome stack are in the blood.. im thinking black, diamond plate, and stacks

Sounds good to me, but you're going to have to spend some time removing that epoxy liner from the food grade drum. Now get busy:biggrin1:

im gonna use the first drum i started out with i have done 2 burns in it already and ill do another good one after i get all the holes punched and what not... i am gonna take the lid from my food grade drum and put it on my other one.... i read somewhere on here e-z off would get the epoxy out if you spray it on and leave it in the sun for it to get hot

J'ville Grill 04-13-2013 01:27 AM

Sounds like you've got it all worked out, good luck with the build and keep us posted.

love2q 04-13-2013 06:06 PM

In the middle of my build got all the hardware on and going to test fit lid.food grade lid acts like its bigger than my oil drum..mabey just cause of the coating...not sure.. Doing my last burn now before i clean it up and paint it trying to burn the crap off the food grade lid as well

love2q 04-13-2013 07:18 PM
