Chris,
It is usually just some ash on the inside. I wash it out and after a good wire brushing and after a test burn it is pretty much smoked up inside.

I see no need to scrub it out anymore. One butt cooking and it will have enough grease to seal in any rust and ash that it is never a problem.

I have a lot of drums cooking out there and have never had any problems. Now if I could just find a Stainless Steel drum for less than $300!!!!!!!

Nothing like the look of stainless.

To me there is no better cooker than the UDS. It is extremely fuel efficient and you can cook 3lbs. of chicken or 40 lbs. of butts on the same cooker. I have 4 now so I can go mobile and still cook for 50-100 people.(I have a large stationary cabinet cooker for home cooking!)

And did I mention CHEAP! Two of my drums are automated.(temperature control) I was thinking of putting a smoke generator on the side of this one so I could use wood chips more efficiently. Hey, why live if you cannot experiment!

Bill

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.

Sweet! Are the WSM's secured to the cart in some way? It looks like it might get bouncy if you walk that off pavement.

I screwed PVC pipe plugs to the frame and the legs of the WSM's fit pretty secure. I remove the lids and centers if we go for a "road trip" to the deck!

PS- when do we get to see some Kamado cooks?

Thanks!
Harbor Freight used to have them and I saw some in the Northern Tool catalog

Thanks Napper,
Next one I probably won't spends so much time on. I also won't burn it until I have time to clean it at the same time.

Default UDS is online!!

With extension mod
Seasoning her right now. Put a couple thermos in to compare temps at different levels. Top is running a little hotter then bottom, but all are within 10 degrees.

My lid doesn't fit real well, I think because where I got the drums stores them stacked on their sides and slightly bent them.

Pick these up for $21.86 each at Pavillions on sale. Will be using the lids off of two of them for both UDS. Will use racks also.

The top section has two grates and lifts off to access the lower two grates and the firebox. I can also put the lid on the bottom section and use it as a traditional drum. Or take the grates out of the top section and use it as a tall lid. I'm anxious to cook on it to see if it can handle the extention.

My first cook is actually gonna be chipotles. I have a bumper crop of jalepenos and want to give them a try. From what I've read, you need to be careful about smoking jalepenos in the same smoker as meat so I'm gonna do them first.
