I know I know. Unfortunately I've moved from 50 acre do what I want to a 1 acre nosey neighbor can't burn nuthin. Maybe I'll have to take a trip. Or just buy an unlined new and tide and warm water bathe it. Seems more appropriate for the neighberhood.

And you sir were my inspiration!


Redneck friends and family always looking for a fire to drink a beer next to helps

Looks like we'll need two more burns. I can see why everyone prefers new unlined. PIA.

I got an open top drum with lid



and something to make a fire basket



I used a 2" EMT for air vent and started the burn



the coating is coming off



burn done, the coating rinsed off with water after the burn



almost finished, just a few mods that will always be done as new ideas come up



the air vent



a 1.5" knock out cover was the perfect sizr to close the top of the air pipe.

i did a burn today with a harbor freight weed burner. took all of 10 minutes at full throttle on a drum that housed olive oil. the paint on the outside brushed off with a rag, inside will need a light sanding. GET A WEED BURNER!!!! easy peasy.....

What am I doing wrong. I tried a weedburner today and only got the lower third, not to include the bottom. Guess the rain and cooler weather didnt help.

Default Kinda Stuck???

Anyone using the 3/4 pipe nipples as intakes w/conduit nuts having trouble threading them all the way through? ( no access to welder) I even tried threading 1 all the way through before installing but couldn't get the other one to thread to the drum. Any suggestions? Thanks

If you don't have a welder you can just cover the hole with magnets or this idea I used from Jerry.

I'll try to help. The short, full thread nipples are slightly tapered from the center down to the end so it is not possible to run a nut all the way across them. What I did is to thread a conduit nut onto the nipple as far as it will go. Then install the nipple from inside the barrel and thread another nut on from the outside. I used a pair of vise grips attached to the nipple to keep it from turning as I tightened the outer nut. You could install the nipple from the outside and turn on the other nut from inside the barrel but that is really cumbersome and it's quite tight quarters!

nope, just inspecting and removing rodents
with the legs removed (from the fireplace, not the cat) and the half of the expanded metal makes a nice basket and plenty of ash collector.

wasn't necessary, water and brush removed the coating leaving bare metal. the picture is before washing.

better draft and its easier to cut it shorter than to lengthen it later
I didn't have and couldn't find a a dome lid. the pipe stack was easier than drilling the lid full of holes. It was my first try at a USD and I wanted to keep the ugly in the name.
geese, this sounds like a bunch of excuses, and excuses are like a buthole; everybody has one and they all stink.
