Although it makes no sense to me since baskets of different height put the heat at different distances from the meat, the answer is from the bottom of the basket.

To continue with the progression of my barrel from my previous post back a few pages: http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...postcount=4450

I've given it a little flame paint job as a reward for the delicious ribs...
1st we tape

then we draw and cut out each line with razor blades

then we paint it with high temp paint and peel off the tape


Next up are wheels and a shelf. I'm getting tired of carrying it around.

If anyone is in the Atlanta area knows of a good place to get a reconditioned drum, it would be much appreciated.

Happy New Year.

Probably not the best choice but I don't think it would get hot enough to melt being a smoke stack. Post pics.

It depend on how you plan to use your UDS, but I wouldn't. Here's a picture of mine @ 525* for searing a roast I smoked. At 525, PVC is.... a liquid!

Welcome aboard! What better way to start the New Year than burnin' out a barrel? Make SURE you take some pics, or you'll never hear the end of it around here!

I agree if you are just gonna be smoking under 300* then PVC might be fine, but if you are gonna do a wide range of stuff with it then use metal.

Not gonna que in that.
I've had that problem a couple times. Just burn it hotter and longer it will burn off without a smell. Give it some breathing holes in the bottom so it can warm up.
