WooHoo!! Found a local drum supplier!!
Thanks to a suggestion from deerslayer8153, I now have a local drum supplier! E.F. Youngs in Meridian. Hair care products mfg. Wife stopped by there today. They told her they sell hundreds of'em. She picked up a 55 gal open head drum that had contained petroleum jelly for 20 bucks. That's with lid and bolt ring. Can't beat that with a stick! I'm excited about starting my uds. Thanks again to deerslayer8153. And thank you to the guys on this forum for sharing their uds builds. Jason :)
