Hi, This is my Work in Progress (WIP) for my UDS.
Struggle to find parts in the UK, and kind of on stop until I can find a basket :-
anyway, here are some Pics :-
I managed to pick up an unlined drum off ebay for about £25 delivered.
its an open drum with the lid, the plan is to weld the black dome to the original lid for a snug fit. The dome Lid, is from a Kettle BBQ that Tesco sells.
Its actually bottom part of the BBQ, but a better fit than the actual lid that came with it. BBQ Charcoal Grates are £15 here, so I figured paying £35 for a kettle BBQ will give me quite a few other parts I can also use.
The Airvent on drum is kind of neat, should help me control smoke exit - the top part slides off as well, giving me about a 4" opening. Hope its enough exit venting.
A shot of the interior & the unlined drum. Really struggled to find the right nipples & threads, here in the UK for a decent price. Ended up getting 1" bushes with a 3/4" opening & some screw in bolts to control air flow.
Another shot of the inside, Ive only really put the charcoal grate in so far.
