Michigan brothers..Looking for a drum...
 
Calling out to any of my Michigan/Detroit area brethren. I'm going to take the plunge and build a UDS. Having trouble locating the right drum(s). Anyone have a good source?

Look on Craigslist in the Detroit area. I found one there in the Clarston area for $30. He still has a post. The drums are great. No liner! Just a rust inhibitor that burns out easy.

I got 1 drum left that fits a Weber lid perfectly. $30. You can get it at the restaurant if you'd like. Let me know.

Since I need to build 2, I'll check this out too. Thanks.

If you don't mind a little drive, ohiobarrel.com has food grade barrels in Lina, OH for $15 each. Don't know about the liner situation or quality. I'm still gathering money for the rest of the parts, and trolling CL for a 22.5 kettle grill for parts.

Where is Lina? I'll be driving to Ft. Wayne, IN next weekend.

Lima. Sorry for the typo. It's on I-75, just south of US30. US30 goes into Ft. Wayne.

Can you pm the info to me? Thanks!

MaxiContainer on Middlebelt in Romulus sells 55 gal barrels. I've bought used barrels with a liner for ~$27, and new unlined barrels for ~$65.

I've seen the CL ad for the guy in Clarkston; if I lived closer to him I'd check those out, but Romulus was closer.

Craigslist flint area did have an ad for food grade barrels a couple days ago.
