My door is on a piano hinge type deal with an arm welded to the outside so the slip hasp pulls the door in tight. It's not airtight yet, I plan to add a gasket to it to seal it up a bit.

I guess it would work....

to me, when building a UDS "perfection" does not come into play....

it could be 8" [mine is 8"], or 10"... or 14".... it would work.....

I guess the secret for a real good smoke job is in the temperatures....

How many chickens?

It appears to me that it is too much time for chicken to cook.

Ain't that the truth. Seasoned it. Got it up to 455* then capped 3 of the 4 intakes (3/4") and gated the other intake down half way. Temps fell to 170*.... Grrrr. Got a grate full of sausages going and I'm struggling to get it back up, even after opening two intakes.

Happy Halloween!

Dusted 2 racks of StLouis style ribs with my homemade rub. Then smoked them for 4 hours at 250 with Kingsford charcoal, applewood and mesquite chunks. Foiled them with dousing of Sprite, back on for another
hour. Unfoiled, brushed some Sweet Baby Rays Brown Sugar sauce on and glazed them for another 45 minutes. I surprised myself, they turned out on the upper end of AWESOME!!! Gonna get me an avatar and be Mr. PorkBelly!

Nice looking flames and even better looking ribs, in my opinion. Welcome to the club!

I have a question. A buddy of mine brought me a sealed drum. He wants me to make a UDS for him. The drum had antifreeze stored in it. Should there be any concern using this drum for a UDS build?

Their is always a concern using a drum that is not new/unused.

as for the antifreeze, it really depends on the type of antifreeze that was stored in it. Most automotive antifreeze are made of water and Propylene glycol, which is, according to the FDA in proper dosages food safe. And another concern is, is that all that has ever been in it?

Now even with that said I would not trust a government agency to say what is ultimately safe for me and my family. Your best bet is to BURN the hell out of that barrel. Very little can survive a hot fire, then a good scrubbing.

My barrel was marked as used for "food grade, biodegradable, cosher coconut oil." No clue as to where or what that was used for as I got it from a steel recyling plant for $7. I cleaned, burned, and cleaned again.

Burn it and you should be good, but you will always find nay-sayers that will say otherwise.

Cheers!
