Well, I wasn't able to pick up my drum today so I figured I would still try to be productive.
I clean up the soon to be lid of my UDS and cut the base ring off just in case I need it to properly fit the lid to drum. I cut up my shopping cart charcoal basket and prepared it for treating to remove the powder coating and then it's off to be welded. I also soaking my cooking grate in a vinegar and baking soda solution in hopes to salvage it for a few smoke outs.
Here are a few pics
