85 gallon UDS
 
I just built my first UDS using a 85 gallon oil drum. It is 52in tall and 26in wide. I was able to do double grates. One is 30in from the bottom and the other is 38.5in from the bottom. Does anyone know how the temperature will vary, from top to bottom and middle of grate to outside wall?

Same as a 55 roughly.

Looks great! :)

Best way to find out is to fire that bad boy up and give it a test run. :thumb:

I had a friend who scored them for $30. They were pretty much brand new. I cooked some spares on it this weekend, for the first time, and the thermometer read 200 the whole time and they cooked a little under 4.

Good looking drum Al!

Is there anything that brings a smile to a face as much as a brand UDS, specially when it's a nice sized monster like that one. Good work!

I know that when my 55 is running at about 250, the bottom 6" or so of the drum is barely warm (literally about 90 degrees F, if that), and the lid is cool enough to remove with my bare hands (barely)... I haven't yet installed my handles. ;-)

I like the height of yours. Mine is 39"x26".

Hogman bought 96 gallon drums from Grainger and they are 42"x26". His were shiny bright yellow drums at one time! Bigger is better!

I also but the head of the bolt on the outside of the barrel. That way all I have to do is push them out to the nut, so I can get the bottom grate out. Works very nice. Anyone else using double grates? How do you have it set up?
