All of the parts we ordered from udsparts. It took about 1 week to reach California. Did The first seasoning today. Sits nicely at 280 with 1/4 open on each pipe. Will post first food pics this weekend.

Finally got it finished. Want to let it set a couple of days for the paint to cure a bit before the first fire.

Can’t wait to see how it looks. We used a step drill for the holes. Made it super easy.

Got them painted but will try and install them later. Nothing fancy about the paint , just doing flat black high temp on this drum. Gonna make 2 more this year for competing and will probably make them pretty! Looking at the VHT line of paint. Like that anodized look!

Default UDS overhaul

My UDS needed some work. I built it about a year ago and made some beginner mistakes.
Since I don't have any welding skills I tried to keep it as simple as possible. So my lid handle was too small. Even for my small hands. Especially with gloves on.



I found this thing in my shed under "things I should have thrown out but I thought they might be useful some day and what do you know I found a use for it". Anyone care to guess what that used to be?



Then I added some probe holes. I recently bought a six probe thermometer. Six holes now. Covered with magnets.



You might notice I had some rust. I didn't cover the barrel until mid winter. By then it was wet for weeks. So my not perfect paint job didn't hold.





I bought this rust removal thing for my angle grinder.



And I started to work.

I didn't realize the barrel was... Barrel shaped. Round with curves. This was not easy. Two hours later I was exhausted but I got all the rust I could see.
Next was the paint.



And the next day it's ready to cook.






But did you guess the handle's origin?

TP Holder.
I'm trying so hard to make a Beavis & Butthead reference to the barrel's bung hole, but it's early and I haven't had my full cup of coffee yet.

The interesting thing, to me, is that barrels had them first. Guess I'm old.

The metal thing looks like a paper towel holder to me.

on a quest to find the easiest simplest charcoal box for a UDS

CLAY BASKET FOR UDS
prep time :2-3 minutes
work involved: drill a few holes
level of effort: 1/10
cost $15
source: lowes
size :15" diameter x 6" height
burn time: unknown. guessing 10-12 hours if loaded, maybe more.

pros. good burn profile. heat stayed stable
cons: cracked on first use.but I have a feeling that was a one time thing and will be fine going forward.burn pic is after 4 hours at 275 degrees
