Newbie here and I have a few questions.
I have bought most of the parts I need to make my UDS. I have a question about my barrel though. I was told it was food grade and vegetable oil was the original product. But I'm not sure. The barrel is black and the inside is a rusty red color. I am going to go ahead and do a good long burn. Will this be enough? Is there a need to sand if you do a burn?
Also there are two grates. Is the lower grate used for a water pan? A friend asked me if it had a place for a water pan, and I told him I didn't think it did, but that got me thinking, Is that what the lower grate is for?
And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
