No I'm not looking for encouragement.. If it ever stops raining here maybe I can get the rest of the paint off. I was going to offer to paint your drum for FREE! Since your such a wise guy your going to have to pay now.
UDS UGLY drum smoker.. the key word is UGLY.. I'm sure your drum is going to be on display at the Smithsonian when your done with it...

Hey guys, I'm looking for a little advice. I'm debating where to drill the 8-1/2 holes on the lid for exhaust. Do I need to do it on the outside or more near the center around the handled.

Eight evenly spaced works great.

P.S. I take sum pics. go to http://s606.photobucket.com/albums/tt149/akarpf/
is your fire ring 1/2" expanded steel?
I took a 51" piece of 3/4" and made it into a cylinder. I see yours is cut in half and bolted together at two locations. I bet this is a hell of allot easier than the fight I went through to get mine together..

My UDS version 2.0 on the right. I still need to add two thermometers and some bling but tonight was her first burn in and chicken cook. I used a Wally World Uniflame dome cover. I have never seen anything from China this cheesy before. Uniflame stuff is total garbage but I dig the hinges on the lid. It was holding temps much better than my version 1.o on the left. I think I'm going to get rid of the smoke stack and go with the eight holes.



Chicken off the UDS. Came out fantastic.

On version 2.0 I have two cooking grates. The Spicewine thermo on version 1.0 is bolted in so I can't remove it. On 2.0 I am going to go with the removable 12" turkey fryer thermo mod.

Well, as many of you guys know I finished my drum and and my fire ring last night. She's ready to do a few dry runs in... I went out this morning to play around with it. The lid I was going to use off my old charcoal grill doesn't fit right. I was thinking of just using a sheet of wood with the 8 hole method until I can find myself a nice sized dome lid. Is there any reason why a sheet of ply wood or something similar to this wouldn't work?

Default Plywood drum lid

Charvo,
plywood may be ok for a test burn ,but plywood is made from ureaformaldihyde glue, a known carcinogen.That would put it up there with galvanized fittings as big no no's for drum cookers.
How about a lid made from solid wood ,barn door style?Might even impart some flavour.
go drummers go!
