Hey guys, new member here. Was inspired to build a UDS by somebody and was refered to this site. WOW. Haven't read through it all. I think I have read about 150 pages. So far so good. Got more than enough information to get me going.
So far I have the drum burnt and drilled. A 0.75" expanded metal grill cut to fit, same size expanded metal 12"x12"x12" charcoal baskett. Just need to scrub the barrel down with the cup brush on the angle grinder, wash it and season/cook. My dad had a hand in the baskett, is the 12x12x12 square baskett suffice or do I need bigger?
