I will say if you paint your UDS chargers colors your cook will start great but wont finish! So stick with Black and Yellow!!

Dunno about bucket handles but I'm pretty sure coat hangers aren't galvanized. :)

The food grade drum I used didn't have a liner.it had butchers blend cooking oil in it. No liner...

I have been looking into building my own oven for powder coating. However I am interested in what it would cost to have it done.

I had someone do it - I have a friend with a powdercoating business. It's about $200 in labor + materials.. Costly? Yup. Durable and awesome looking? You bet!.

I made the mistake of having him sandblast it first as I was planning on welding, but I ended up bolting / riveting everything. They have to sandblast it again before powdercoating, to get any oils from your hands / whatever off of it. Better to just get the drum, make your holes everywhere, and then send it off for blasting / coating.

No that drum would look "flashy" but have "choking" issues at the exhaust creating "inconsistent" cooks.

Hello All,
Having read 6000 + posts, I am still a little confused about the 57cm / 22 1/2" weber replacement grate you guys are buying.
Is this measurement the weber smoker itself or is it the grate ?
My drum measures 20" internal diameter, so the real question is...would the 57cm / 22 1/2" weber replacement grate fit inside ?
Any help appreciated,
Cheers and beers

No.. it won't.... drums come in different sizes.

the 22.5" grate you talk about fits the 23" Diameter drums.

I don't know if you'll find a grate for your drum... but you should try www.ebay.com ... you find basically everything there.

How about buying the cooking grates for the 18.5" kettles? you will likely need longer bolts to hold them in place. Hopefully the length of the bolts won't interfere with pulling the charcoal basket in and out. Another option might be to rig levels in your drum by bolting short lengths of chain that would hook onto the grates. When you take the grates out, the chains would fall to the side and leave plenty of room for basket removal. I have not tried this - just thinking aloud.

Was doing a walk about west of the UT campus in Austin this morning, and what do my wondering eyes to appear - but a very bright red smoker inside a food trailers (vendor was not open). I would post the picture I snapped of it- but through the window and bugscreen, it does not do it any favors. That said, it had a tag on it and I googled it back to it's manufacturer - http://www.facebook.com/RileySmokers. Will not link to a pic there - but it was a simple but very attractive build. Very possibly used stainless hardware and powder coating (that is my wag - no research to prove it positive).

Anyway was fun seeing another UDS in the wild, and it a place I would never have expected. The trailer was sugar shack bbq - which is a friend of theirs on facebook.
