Talking A New MUDS is Born

The weather decided to cooperate today so I could get to work on her. Last weekend I was able to burn the 10 Gallon drum out




Another new toy


Then I had to remove the bottom of the drum




Then used the weed burner to burn off the sealant and a few other spots. Then came the wire brushing



Outside and inside


Then I laid out my holes for my racks, yes plural, and another set of holes for a 10" terra cotta diffuser.

I wiped it down with denatured alcohol , sprayed it down wit Pam spray and seasoned it for an hour at 500 degrees using mesquite for seasoning.

Since I had a fire going I chocked it down until it reached 300 degrees and rubbed up some thighs. I used yellow mustard and an apple rub that SWBO gave me.


YUMMMM

Thanks for looking.

Nice! I have seen those military style drums here at work many a time but could only dream. Govt. uses them to put cables into around here for storage/shipment.

i dig the all the MUDS that come up on the board. they also seem to get a lot of "play" from folks that see them. last memorial day we were camping and had neighbors stopping by that were totally intrigued - some had never seen anything like them. or maybe it was the alluring smoke sausage smell permeating the woods...

having some extra time between eating, my buddy decided to "suspend/rig" the middle section above our fire like a chimney and treated it over several hours. pretty sure we were barley fogged but i think he used leftover bacon grease.

maybe it sounds gross but it gave it a nice cast iron pantena effect and is not greasy to the touch just kinda shiny. natures rust inhibitor? i actually like what it did (although i'd prolly go for pam or vegie next time) you can see the dif between the MUDS and the 2 UDS' - they both have the same hi-temp black paint.



it's held up really well - so well i think i will treat the 55's this summer.

MUDS are perfect for camping. Everything they need fits inside of them. Plus, visitors usually bring a beer or two when they come over and ask questions! I'm digging the look, I may just have to do that on my next trip.

I hope to do some camping this summer and the MUDS will be going along to drive the other campers crazy with the smells of real BBQ. Right now I'm trying to decide what do on it next weekend.
