Browser, not turning back now!!!!!! No need for a water pan...don't use them in a UDS. I hated myself so bad after I built my first one, I built 3 more. Good luck and post the progress.

Quick question, I want to do the burn on my drum, I saw someone used wood and piled it high. I was going to do the same thing and realized that the wood I have is hardwood like eukalptis and oak (Yea I know, Spelled it wrong). Can I use these woods are will it mess it up for cooking.

Thanks,
Brian

P.S. I also have a chitload of pine. But i know better. Also a lot of 2x4's which I know is also pine. I saw a picture on someone in this thread using that.

Are you burning off the lining? If so, just start a raging fire in it and let it get as big and hot without setting SoCal ablaze, you could layer/stack the wood in it and if you know where the intakes are going to be drill the holes now before you strike the match and really let the oxygen flow! This is such a PITA that it's almost worth it to find an unlined drum, but hey! after you've done it you'll see what I mean! The object of the UDS is to do it cheap and doing it yourself and I did! The second, third, fourth and waiting in the wings fifth drum are all unlined. UDS#1 is now just a burn barrel, givin it up for progress!

Took me about 4 hours to clean the inside of mine after the burn. I hope to have final pics by the end of the weekend.

Man those are nice. Where did you get the bottom pan to add the wheels? Is that a smitty pan. My barrel had a water soluble lubricant. I am contacting Bentley to see what he did with his. What are you using for your vent plugs. I can't quite make them out?

Thanks for the help,
Brian

Any chance of seeing the cart you made for your WSM's? I see it behind the UDS's

Thanks

Just built another UDS this morning. Burned it off with the "weed burner" torch. Takes a while but works good!
Doing a test burn as we speak. All plugs out it is running at about 460 degrees! A little too hot for butt cooking!!!!!!!!!!

This is drum # 12! I have 4 myself and have given the others away.
I get calls weekly about cooking questions!

Only way to go!

Napper,
Did you do anything to the inside after you torched it? I thought it had to be 'clean'. (see my pic above)

Ask and you shall receive! This was the frame of a Weber Performer.




I'm still working on the cart, have a sheet of stainless steel that will set on the top next to the folding table to use with the right WSM removed, need to cut the contour out and its good to go.
