Probably build a cart/wagon for them for easy moving, hopefully, that will come in the spring.

All in all, I'm happy with it. I'll be glad to find out how it cooks.

Open to any and all feed back. Want to thank everyone on here for the great info and step by step pictures/instructions.

Looks great! I like the clips.. i don't think I would change those out.....

Now for the question; My drum has rusted on the inside before I've had the chance to season it. Do I have to sand out all the rust again? or can I season it and not worry about it?

Thanks,
ps. Love this forum!
Don't worry dude, just use it already. No need to get rid of the rust.

FYI... Just got back from the local Wally World and they have the 22.5" replacement grates for $12.00. I do not believe they are as heavy duty as the Weber replacements but they are pretty nice for the price

Default Finally Found

I finally located a drum this past weekend . Now I am in the process of collecting all of the needed parts to put it all together once I get the burn out done. The drum has a thing brown/tan lining that should burn out easily since it is already scratched down to bare metal in one spot on the bottom. Here are some cell phone pics.



One of these days I will finish painting that door and wall

I grabbed one of those for mine, very flimsy. Sears Hardware had one for $10.99, I'm probably going to go grab a couple of of those, they seemed a lot sturdier.

HD and Lowe's have genuine Weber replacements for only a couple bucks more. Just picked up a 22.5" hinged replacement the other day for $19.

Talking Seasoning with a Jack on the rocks

OK!

Couldn't wait, so I brought my drum home from work and lathered it up with lard. Removed all the caps and the valve and fired it up with around 8 lbs. of charcoal. it's chugging along at around 500. I can hear the lard bubbling and cooking off.

The only downside: the lid I spent forever trying to get to fit perfect has now developed a "twist" and doesn't sit flush. It touches all the way around, just not metal to metal like it was. I guess some more hammer adjustments are in order.

Come Saturday it's on!

As soon as I get the pix off my camera, I'll post with comments.

Thanks again to everyone on this forum!

Default mineral oil drum

I just finished reading the whole thread last night. I got a Free unlined food grade mineral oil drum from a bakery I deliver to. Question is what do I have to do to the drum before I start my build? Do I have to burn it out or can I just season it with the oil that is in it ?

Default First cook.

just fired up the UDS. I'm using Kingsford competition and hickory chunks. Letting temp stabilize and then I'll throw on the pork shoulder.

Since I'm watching the grill today, I'll get the pictures off my camera and post some build shots.

Question on computing COST of building my UDS. I just purchased an oxygen-acetylene welding system.

Does this count in my total, or can I split the cost amoung future UDS that I may or may not build?
