So my stainless UDS is almost done. I've been called the name for years so I've decided to embrace it. The blank space is for "bbq"

So how's she look?

Pitboss...yes i do want to utilize the burner and that is one on my issues...how to mount the tank and be a "safe" distance from the drum. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated on any part of the rig!

You shouldn't need too much distance from the barrel as it doesn't really get hot enough and any air gap improves that. Here in Texas the tank may reach 130* to 140* sitting in the sun on the deck, BTW with no issues. I would say mount it under the wire basket on the rt side and if you want put a piece of metal between the tank and barrel as a deflector.

Looks great, did the same with mine in the middle. What did you cover the exposed steel with? I wipe mine down with Gibbs brand Lubricant... I use this stuff on everything, check it out. http://www.gibbsbrandlubricant.com/

Default First UDS - Making some progress

I have posted a few times - as I have started my first UDS. I am working on it only occasionally because life tends to take priority.

Here are may latest pics.

I am now contemplating the lid. I eventually want to use a Weber lid, but I am clinging to the KISS principle for now. My #2 Weber lid sits on the rim of the UDS, but not over it.

My UDS lid is flat. I put the top grate supports only about 6" below the underside of the lid. So, I want to make exhaust ports that are as flush to the underside of the lid as possible - so as to maximize the area above the top rack. I want to use the top rack as much as possible. Also, I want to use fittings that will keep rain out during a cook.

I have determined that the area of a 2" exhaust hole is close to 2 1-1/2" holes, and 4 1" holes. Are there any suggestions for what I should do since my lid does not have a hole already? I am focused on keeping whatever I use, very close to the underside of the lid. Also, but not critical, I do not have a good tool for making holes bigger than 1-1/8".

Has anyone put exhaust holes / fittings on the side of the drum, near the top? They would look similar to the intakes, and they would not add weight to the lid.

Thanks. Those look like 1" pipe and 90s? Also, I like the handle what is it? Where did you get it?

I just grabbed these (200L/55 US gallons) and placed an order for a River Country thermometer and some high temp paint, can't wait to get started now I just need to grab one of those hinged Weber grates and a few ball valves! If the first one turns out well I'm probably going to cut the other down the middle and create some kind of horizontal doohicky

Can you guys tell by the pics if its lined or not? The bottom just has surface rust, but is pretty dang solid.




I didn't see finished build pics but hope he kept the Shasta paint job on the outside, it's awesome and original.
