I got it locally at a place called Ditty Containers. They sell brand new unlined drums in 16 and 30 gallon sizes, choice of open or closed top. I paid $43 for my 16 gallon open top drum.

Here's a pic of the new, open top drum I got:

And perfect size for hanging ribs! Looks good. You could run a second rod at 90° and easily fit a couple more racks of ribs.

I've got a 15 (or 16) gallon drum, also. I had been planning on turning it into a mini UDS. Carbon, you might just have me convinced to go the same route as yourself, and either take the bottom off of the drum, or fill it w/ holes.

Did you simply load the SJ bottom with coals, or did you fab a small charcoal basket (ala the tamale pot mini wsm)? Excellent job on the leg mod, too. What size flat stock is that? And is it aluminum?

You've made yourself quite a nice cooker... looking GREAT!

Default Smokey Joe 16 first cook!

Bob13.....thanks, I'm not using a basket at the moment. I see that many with mini-WSM's don't either. I am getting a nice burn pattern using briquettes but also feel that the ash build up is quite excessive. I shield the intake vents from ash with a can and it's effective.

I fabricated the legs out of 1" x 1/8" thick aluminum bar.
Here's a close up pic:

Damn I wish I had a local place to get one that cheap. I've been wanting to build a mini UDS for a while now but all the drums places I've found online want a fortune for a 16. Gonna wait till one comes my way cheap.

Nice looking setup you got there!

I drilled out the bottom for now and that seem to work well with the hanging ribs. It also doubles as a safety catch in case I drop the meat, which I've done in my UDS...lol...
But I can, of course, cut the bottom out completely at any time should I decide to go that route and run it with no diffuser.

Man, I used to be happy with tamale pot modded smokey joe. How will I explain the need to find a 16 gallon drum?!

Nice build. I am in the process of building a mini UDS out of one for a friend.

If anyone is interested I got my drum for free from 5 Minute Oil Change.
