We got lucky, the ones we got had veggie oil in them. Some that have made others UDS's had Linex drums and had to burn them out.

Open and find out. See if they have some spare pallets and use that to burn it out.

You will get way more burn time than that. I did a brisket today. It was on for 12 hours. Still lots of charcoal left.

I usually shut all the vents down and save the charcoal for the next cook. Tonight I decided to clean some of my cooking grates. I opened all the vents and left the lid off for a few minutes. Brought the UDS up to 450 with no problem!!!!

These things are amazing!!!

I knew I should have gotten a brisket or butt when I was at the store...

I put one stick of wood in there kinda thin and it is not even close to being burnt down. It's still tan on top.

Deez,

Sometimes when they put food items in barrels they have a plastic coating on the inside - a lining. Are you sure yours didn' have that?

I grinded some down where I was going to weld the brackets b/f I decided to screw them in and it didn't seem like it. There was no smell or after taste.

Just so you know, that split where they press the drums together isn't easily seen until the lid is removed due to the rolled lip. When you start in with your grinder just grind under the lip and then looking at the top of the drum you will start to see it discolor and smoke, that is a sign that you have went through the outer skin of the drum. You may even go through slightly in a few places until you get use to it. Not a big problem though just tweak you procedure from there. after you get through about 1/4 of the way around the drum, you will find that you can raise the lid quite a bit and see your progress.


I have updated the Photobucket page with the latest of Mrs. DeeZ pictures. View them as a slideshow, it is easier than clicking. I am chomping at the bit to get mine completed now. I just cannot believe that DeeZ didn't finish mine too on Saturday......

Thosen drums sure look like they have a lining to me. I'd do a couple of big wood burns in the to get that off. Find a couple old pallets, cut em up and burn baby burn.

Even if it were to have a plastic lining which it doesn't, nothing wrong with plastic. I have seen many old refrigerators converted into smokers. The goal with these drum smokers is that the fire will never touch the sides of the drums, that is what the charcoal basket and ash pan is for. Also, the smoker will gather a seasoning on the walls of the smoker with age. Now if there were to be a big fire in the drum, I would be concerned with toxic paint and or plastic. That would also lead to the barrel rusting out sooner.

I was also wondering about the lining, but if you're OK with it fine. It's really great to see the interest in the Ugly Drum Smoker evolving. I think I'm finished with building drums for the time being, and now have two 38" drums with dual cooking racks, and one 34" single rack, all with the original drum lids and Weber lids. Along with my WSM and the 3 UDS's I'll try to do a couple comps and have some fun with them. I took my ugliest drum to the Dr.BBQ Competition Cooking class this past weekend and had a blast with it! I'm a low budget putzer and don't really have any great aspirations to be a GC, just out for some fun and do some Q'n! Anyway I'm the Grand Champion in my own backyard!
Drum on my Brothers!
