I've been lurking for about 2 weeks now .... last week I decided to build my UGS and today I completed it. I found an unlined 55 gal steel drum that had been used for Coconut Oil. It has a removable lid and 2 bung holes. It didn't take much to complete and tonight I'm giving it a test run. Nothing in it but 10lbs of briquettes. With one 3/4" nipple open, 1 closed and a ball valve at 1/4 open I'm getting temps of 260. I bet that will go down with meat in the smoker though. Nevertheless, I've closed the ball valve and in an hour I'm going to check to see if I've dropped to 225. I'll post pics tomorrow.
