Default my first u.d.s. build

oh boy, i hope this works. iv'e never attached photos before.

I read several threads about people cooking on the uds’s and was intrigued, so I found a link to the ultimate uds thread and started reading. My original goal was to read it all and use the best ideas (to me anyway) to build my own.
Well last week I was 30+ pages into what I found was over 300 pages and couldn’t wait any longer. So I found a food grade drum that contained sunflower oil and went to work.
Pic #1 drum with Webber lid on it to make sure it fits. YES!!

Pic #2
Cut bottom off of barrel. Laid it on it’s side on stand and used hammer to flatten edge.

Pic#3 lid not fitting????
Note to self. Do not test fit lid on top of drum then cut out bottom of drum. My idea was to use the top as the bottom so that I could make use of the 2” bung fitting for my intake. Silly me, who woulda thought that the top and bottom would be different sizes.

Pic#4 cut out ½ inch wedge.
Pic #5 used cargo strap to “shrink” top (bottom) to proper size, then welded.
