I have read that several of you have made various goodies for a New Years party and I would love to do the same. The question is what is the coldest outside air temp any of you have used a UBS? I live in Minnesota and it could be plenty cold even below 0 degrees by that time of year. Well back to more reading.
Many have used them below 0. A water heater insulation blanket will help fuel consumption. Could use a welders blanket or some such as well. I live in Oregon (not terribly cold) and neither it or rain affects my UDS. Wind is the big issue so I have it placed where it is blocked and I'll put a cinder block just in front of the intake to minimize wind gusts entering the barrel and causing temperature fluctuations.

Get a can of cooking spray and coat the inside of it to season it and prevent rusting.

I hit mine with a propane torch to burn any coating off.

Glad to help. I also did this with the nuts and bolts I used too. I couldnt find stainless so I had to buy coated ones. I installed them and heated them up until they were just steel.

Just gave a good friend on mine a "complete" drum setup yesterday for a retirement present. I even gave him a bag of lump charcoal and a torch!!!

We fired it up and it was running 280 degrees when I left. He was already talking about making modifications! I think we have another "Drum Head" in the group.

Sometimes it really is better to give than to receive.

Exactly that has been post many times in this thread but people are still scared to use it

I've cooked at -50F with and with out insulation, only difference is the amount of fuel used, If you use a Guru or Stoker you really need to close the exuast to about 20% or blast of cold air will drive temp down and take a long time to recover

Here is an old post of mine at -38F

Hope that helps

Look on Craigslist for a food grade drum. If not then you can use an automotive drum but you must get it real hot to burn off the toxins before using for cooking.

Sucks to say but you should read the thread.

If it held a flammable liquid like oil, I would just burn it out.

You can also buy a gallon of muratic pool acid and pour some in a jar and soak the zinc cover nuts and bolts in that. The acid will take the coating off after a good soak. Ive done that and then hit them with a torch after I washed them.

buy an NON food grade drum save you from dealing with a linner, drill the 3 intake air holes and burn it out. Oil drums work just fine just burn them out with a pallet :) I prefer open top salvage drums but oil drums are just fine.
