Yeah its 2 coats vht flameproof primer, 2 coats vht fire engine red engine metallic, and 1 coat engine clear. Cured paint and seasoned the other night. I was a bit upset when paint got here, ordered through summit racing and I thought fire engine red would be RED! Being a Husker fan the Copper orange color isn't what I was lookin for! Oh well next one will be flat black and blackshirt themed!

Some guys use a single larger diameter pipe for the intake and others use several smaller holes and a ball valve. The guys with the large intake, anyproblems with uneven burn or temp control?

Most of the UDS folks cook with only one intake open. I usually have one intake open about halfway (1" hole adjusted with fridge magnet) to maintain 250-275. As long as I keep the open intake away from prevailing wind, I don't experience any uneven burns. The coals burn from the center, where I arranged my pre-lit coals, to the outer edge fairly even.

Yes. My fuel consumption was cut in about 1/2. I can cook for 20+ hours on 5-7lbs of Kingsford Competition briq. But the best thing about it is its stability and weather resistence. Temps stay rock steady through wind and rain with little or no tending.

Default Food grade liner

Thanks for all the pictures and info. This site has been an amazing help for me and a friend to do a first build.
Question about inner liner; mine has the red food grade liner. We burnt the hell out of it for several hours and had the temp way up there. Do I still need to sand it or should it be OK? I'll never have the temp half that high again so I'm feeling pretty confident but you guys have done a lot of these. Sorry if I missed the answer to this somewhere else in the thread.
