Since there are different issues with the build of a 85 gal UDS, I thought a separate thread would be helpful.

I am considering building a few of them. I will probably have to buy them new. Here is one choice which has "Interior Coating Mild Rust Inhibitor".

That barrel is from this source, but there may be better sources.

The specifications are:

Capacity (Gal.) 85
Height (In.) 39 1/4
Overall Height (In.) 39 1/2
Inside Dia. (In.) 26
Outside Dia. (In.) 27
Construction Rolled and Formed
Material Carbon Steel
Material Thickness (In.) 0.048
Interior Coating Mild Rust Inhibitor
UN Rating Solid 1A2/X440/S
UN Rating Liquid 1A2T/Y320/S
UN Certification 1A2/X440/S
Thickness (mm) 1.2
For Use With Packing Groups I, II and III of Hazardous Materials
Color Yellow with A Red Cover
Standards DOT 49 CFR173.3

I am not sure if the 26" Weber grills will fit in something exactly 26" inside diameter?
