XL Ugly Drum Smoker
 
Since there are different issues with the build of a 85 gal UDS, I thought a separate thread would be helpful.

I am considering building a few of them. I will probably have to buy them new. Here is one choice which has "Interior Coating Mild Rust Inhibitor".

That barrel is from this source, but there may be better sources.

Overall Height (In.) 39 1/2
Inside Dia. (In.) 26
Outside Dia. (In.) 27

I am not sure if the 26" Weber grills will fit in something exactly 26" inside diameter?

Keep us posted if the grates fit from a 26 in. weber!! That's nice looking barrel.

85 gal. UDS.Great minds deteriorate with great rapidity!
 
My warehouse is 8 blocks from a Grainger and I was looking at the exact same page of their catalog thinking the same thing. Normally there is no shipping if you pick it up at the store. I am also studying up on the grate issue. I have welding equipment and some expanded metal on hand, so am considering the custom fab route. However, making pretty circles without jigs is a pain. If I find a good solution I will share.
later, jeff

Well, so far I can't find either the size or a source for a Weber 26" replacement grate.

Lowes? Home Depot?

Just checked their web sites and both only carry up to the 22.5" size ones. The new 26" is so new, they probably don't think they need to carry any replacement parts yet.

Looked at the Weber.com site and they don't have 'em there either yet. I will give them a call Monday to see if they just haven't put them up on the site.

I just measured the grate for the 22.5 Weber and it is 21.5". This leads me to believe the grate for the 26.75 " Weber will be around 25.75" which just might fit this particular drum.

Seems to me that there may be room for three of them with that much extra height? Looking at Desert Dweller's BDS, you could get 15 butts in there with three grates.

Just got a tweet from Larry (BBQGrail) who said he found his 26" grates at Weber. Thanks Bro!

The grate part number 71201 and that is $41.75 direct from Weber. You will have to tell them OVER and OVER that you have the part number or they will be asking for your grill model number, etc.
