Default Another UDS Build With Pics

Hello,
This is my first build. My brother and I decided to get two drums and go for it. Please have a look and comments are appreciated.

open head drum (new unlined)
1" NPT Inlet
new weber grill
and a lot of trips to HD
3 weber racks (one was from grill)

Total cost $350 give or take

I know I could have done it cheaper if I had sourced my parts better and taken more time but I wanted it done and that's what it cost me.

I think I messed up on the ash pan it's only 16" we will have to wait and see.

The only thing left to do now is disassemble it, burn it, and paint it.

Thanks for looking,
Dan

What do you find is the advantage of building the UDS and then disassembling it prior to burning out and painting it?

After I burn it my thoughts were that with the risers and handles off, it will be easier to clean and prep the barrel for paint.

The intent of my question was to ask why not burn it out before you build it. Seems like duplicate work.

We probably should have done that first but we were excited and wanted to get right into the build.
