Well I have read alot of the pages of this post and I decided to build my own UDS. I have made the basket using a weber 18 inch charcoal grill and expanded metal, but still have no drum.
I have tried craiglist for the very first time and might have the ability to get a drum for 50 delivered to the house, dang thing would be to hard to fit in a civic
. im still waiting for a reply from them concerning if the drum had any linings and what was the drum used for.
Anyways I have started, but not having some of the tools and buying alot of the stuff at HD and Lowes, it has not been the cheapest UDS i have seen on here, it should still be cheaper then a WSM so alls good, lol.
