Just IMHO, don't get carried away with the handles, they don't get hot so go cheap keeping with the purpose of a UDS. KEEP IT SIMPLE..... Great thread! Just my $.02.

Personally I wouldn't use these. Fin wanted them so I made them. Simple garage door handles work just fine. But the do scream "Smoker"

F'n AAAAAAAAA!!!!!

I feel like I'm in love already.

Personally, I like the recycled ecb handles on my first uds. The financier of our operation decided on those handles.

When this comes to my house(after the Spice Thermometers get to you), I will provide further pics after its Cardinal & Gold paint job.

Well done Sir Norco. You have found you new job......when you retire.

Them wire handles do look pretty good...

Brian already got his. Saw it the other nite, and its a damn fine looking cooker to be sure.
Those handles were NOT my first choice. The ecb handles on my first drum work great.
I'll be using my gloves.

I am thinking that it maybe contained exterior latex paint. That makes sense considering the drum had what appeared to be streaks of white paint on the inside.

Can I use this? I have been looking for a source for a "food grade" barrel and simply cannot find one I know is of this type. For that matter, I don't know how "food grade" is different then "not food grade".

I just wanna get started on this.
I believe BBQ Bubba uses these all the time, Shoot him a pm on it.

Got my drum. Got the 1" holes drilled around the bottom for the inlets. Picked up various bits of black pipe fittings to make the inlets. I am going to use the nuts for electric conduit cause I don't feel like rigging a connection for the welder.
I got a Weber charcoal grate from HD and a piece of expanded metal at the hardware store (HD doesn't have it in my area). This piece is 16" x 32". I plan to cut in half giving 2 8" x 32" pieces. This should wrap around the grid. I plan to mount the grate about 2" up, this will give about a 6" tall coal holder with a 17' diameter.
Is this about right? Any tips for "rolling" the expanded metal?

1" holes fit the 3/4 pipe stuff just right. Drilled 3. Will install 3/4 pipe nipples, 2 with caps and 1 with ball valve.

I had holes drilled today also. I had four 1/2 inch holes in the lid and four of the same size at the bottom.... the guy who helped me out did not have any larger bits... I ran to Lowes to get a 7/8ths bit for the thermo but they did not have that size.....

My question is will I need bigger holes for the air intake.... I am cheap and will be using magnets for the air control....

Any advice is appreciated...

If you find you need the bigger drill bits, check Harbor Freight Tools, they had the bits you would need or about $12 or $14 bucks.
