Thanks for any help.
The moral of the story is to stay away from drums with red linings.

after building my first uds and having to get that dang liner out, I have decided that in the future I will buy new. I can get new barrels for 50 bucks. Sure, I can get a used food grade barrel with liner for 3 bucks but to be honest...Im too farkin' lazy to do all that crap again. To me, (and Im cheap) it will be 50 bucks well spent.

Its probably been mentioned in here before but have any of you tried Jasco or aircraft stripper to get the left over liner out? I would figure you could rinse it well and do another burn and be good to go. Plus if its not burning completely out with some of these big red hot fires its probly ok during the lower temps of a smoke. Just curious.

I hear ya' brother. My sentiments exactly. I still have my second drum with the thin clear lining and I am dreading even starting on it. I can get new unlined ones for $48 here also.

If I do try another one I'll probably go strictly weed burner. I live too close to the FD and have a cranky old lady neighbor right next to me. It is kinda fun and the weather is right for it now! Of course when you factor in $17.99 for a tank of propane you are even closer to the $48 for a new one.

You should just ask the FD when you are allowed to burn it out. Forget the old cranky neighbor...you probably are allowed to burn in the barrel

Yeah I had the holes already drilled.

I think I will just go with the weed burner and a little bit of grinding.

Default First UDS just burned in.

Hey guys! Just want to say thanks to everyone for all the info on perfecting the UDS. This is the center of the DRUMOLOGY universe.

I just completed my first drum, and the embers from the first burn are still glowing. Once it's painted, I'll post a pic.

Nice job burt! I just finished mine yesterday. It handles like nothing I ever used before. I have total control of my temps. She is a real dandy. I woke this AM, around 6ish and started some coals. I have a pork shoulder on there now. Thanks so much Brethren!

Default change to my drum

I put two of these $3 dollar valves on my intakes on my drum.(have a brass one on one of the three) Even at 375 deg. they were cool to touch. The drum seems easier to control now. I change all three at the same time and it seems to burn in three directions in fire pan. I am not one of the Ellette but in my opinion this works great.

Hey guys, new member here. Was inspired to build a UDS by somebody and was refered to this site. WOW. Haven't read through it all. I think I have read about 150 pages. So far so good. Got more than enough information to get me going.

So far I have the drum burnt and drilled. A 0.75" expanded metal grill cut to fit, same size expanded metal 12"x12"x12" charcoal baskett. Just need to scrub the barrel down with the cup brush on the angle grinder, wash it and season/cook. My dad had a hand in the baskett, is the 12x12x12 square baskett suffice or do I need bigger?
