Grocery store ads come out tomorrow. Start planning your cook.

I bring in a lot of leftovers to work on Monday's including several racks of ribs, pounds of pulled pork, and most recently MOINK Balls and it is always gone before I go home. I showed one of them a picture of my new UDS, and they kind of turned up their nose...

Hey everyone! My barrel is burned and now I need to take a wheel wire to it inside and out.

Does anyone know where I can find a knotted wheel wire for a decent price? They want $18 for a Milwaukee 4” knotted wheel wire at HD.
They have a Blacken Decker non-knotted coarse wheel wire for $5 but I am not sure how efficient that one is?

Any advise on how to get the rest of the charred paint and liner out without spending too much money?

I am also at that point with my barrel. I burned it out well and have hit the obvious couple of paint spots that the burn missed, but how can you tell all of the liner is out?

Thanks,

John

I remember reading someone mentioned before if its form a nice even brown layer of light rust after you power wash it you are going to go otherwise keep grinding / sanding.

Well, that's where I am at. The inside is a powdered rust. There are black spots but after the burn I took a wire brush to it, it turned a rusty color (Upper Left). In this pic you can where the barrel turned black (Upper Right):



So, will a non-knotted wheel wire work or should I buy a knotted one?

I tried the non-knotted one but it didn't work that well and went to my friend's shop using one of these and works like wonder,that is a package of 20 so they are not expensive but not sure where you can buy them though.

Thumbs up 55 Galloon UN rated steel Drun in Georgia

Hello all,

If you live int the Metro Atlanta are I found a couple of places where you can get some very nice UN rated 55 gallon drums:

Mconnell DDrum service
5880 New Peachtree Rd
Atlanta, GA 30340
(770) 451-1100
UN rated Refurbished Open Top, lined $34


Chambers Drum Company
71 Roberts St
Fairburn, GA 30213
(770) 964-7467
UN rated Refurbished Open Top, lined $32

They both carry unlined drums, but these will have to be purchased brand new for around $51 to $68 each

Have fun!

Try here. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/retail_stores.taf I use a wire wheel cup that I put on my grinder. Note: get ear plugs or muffs, it gets loud in there.

Here it is, I think. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...temnumber=7388

Cool, thanks! Right in my price range.

I was planning on heading over there after work today. I'll take a look at it.

I still have a way to go then to get to bare metal. I can see fine rust forming over much of the inside but still has a few "protected" spots I need to work on. Thanks for the info
