I have just started on making my UDS. Finally managed to get hold of a drum with a lid and found somewhere that soda blasted it for me for free... Result!!
Just started drilling all of the holes etc and am now looking at which cooking grate to buy. I have a 6ft circumference drum which gives an overall diameter of 34". I was looking at the weber grate but that only seems to have diameter of about 23". Is this big enough? If so, what size bolts will I need to hold this? I've seen others using 2" but would this be enough to hold the grate?
Now that I commenced work, I shall upload some photos as I progress.
