awesome design..Love that NC ingenuity

I've been noodling over the idea of putting together a small cook where I feed as many vets and their families visiting the Durham VA or trying to do a cook for the Ronald McDonald house for families with sick loved ones... I think your 85 gal drum would hold enough food to make quite a few people happy...

PM me if interested in joining us

@ Dave M......... yeah its pretty tall. If I put a dome lid on it the DHS would think I had a mini SCUD missile sitting on my patio! lol
I am alittle over 6' tall and I can still put a grate all the way down on my lowest setting without any problem. The coal basket will be a challenge. I will prolly have to make me some hooks of some sort.

I saw a charcoal basket design earlier on youtube that had a chain attached to it..seemed real easy to access it and remove with it

I believe I seen the same one. I have a similar idea but my basket handle will be solid and I will use a chain to retrieve the basket. Either that or make two T handle hooks.

Also....... I may have a line on another 85 gal drum. The guy I got mine from had another. It had a few battle scars but never the less it was an 85. If anyone is in the area an may want it let me know and I will see if he still has it.

well, if it's real tall, I recommend you only cook with old t-shirts. all your cook shirts are gonna get a grease line across the belly that never comes out :D

I've been entertaining the idea of a UDS for quite some time..I'd love to take you up on the offer but I dont have any of the awesome toys that I see in your pics... You went for metal toys and I went for a small wood working shop....

very tempting though.....

I am not sure I have a T-shirt that doesn't have a stain of some sort. Oh.... no wait I think I have one. My wife keeps it in a Ziploc bag...

Does a Weber 26" lid come close to fitting? I'd sure try that approach if you've got the welding skills (and you do..).

This is why I look at every new UDS build on here. I've made 20+ over the last 5 years for friends and profit and learned every thing I know about them from this website. Alway love the different twists people do to these awesome cookers.

For thermos, I would add a Tel Tru, they are probably the most reliable, come in a bunch of sizes and face color options (I use the glow in the dark but they make a trick black face also). I would also add a couple gromets to insert probes from an electronic unit. I use the iGrill but Maverick makes a great unit ant there is a new BluTherm Duo wireless bluetooth unit out from Thermoworks (the makers of Thermopen).
