I have been reading this thread far about a month, and finally attempted a UDS build. I reall appreciate all the info that has been shared on this site. The Drum is finished and just needs a coat of paint. all in all thigs came out well. I have been spending some time fine tuning, and learning its quirks. ill poast some picks when painted. I used a cheep lows grill for the lid. No webbers to be found on CL. not perfect, but not bad for a first attempt. By far the most important lesson i learned is that a big hot fire in the drum (burn out the liner) can result in a big fast response from the fire department! weed burners are defentally the way to go. Thanks again for all the input. the flavor of the food is incredable.
