Tom9193--yes. Enlarge your holes then paint the bare metal. If you used a spray can, just use the same can send spray a small. Amount onto a paper plate and use s small paint brush to brush on the paint

Default Also check your ball valves

Some have very small openings.

The intake holes are drilled 3 inches from the bottom.

The lid has 4 3/4 exhaust ports.

My charcoal basket is a Weber 18.5 charcoal grate as a base and 16 gauge expanded metal welded to it.

I added 4 inch tall legs to the bottom of the basket. I have attached a picture of both my barrel and charcoal basket.

I have tried methods such as lighting a few briquettes and adding to the top and letting them burn down.

Also today I light a whole chimney of coal and poured them on the bottom and add the unlit coals to these.

Both of the methods failed to get the temp up after waiting at least a half hour.

My best guess is to eliminate the legs on my basket? I'm baffled anything will help thanks.

I also tried my original build with risers and found it didnt work well for me. I have since made different tweeks and I also bought a pitmaster iq and will never look back. Some may think it is cheating but I have very little problem controlling my temps. Just my 2 cents.

Default My First UDS

This build was only made possible by all of you...

Welding and mods all done... off to the sandblaster...


Back from blasting and ready for assembly...


Raised Basket for ease of lighting... maybe even some grillin' someday...


An inside look...


After a 3-hour seasoning run the night before...

Let's fire it up..!


Hard to find good "chunk" around here... working on that... mixed mesquite chips throughout...


It's alive..!


Ready for cookin'...


Startin' Low & Slow with some Ribs...


225-250F average = Great results...


A little Whiskey sauce to finish 'em off...


Money Shot...


Thanks everyone.

The inside feels like bare metal.

Also, am I OK to paint over the existing paint with high temp? Just directly onto the existing paint?


I know this has been mentioned before, but I want to get it right.

Thanks in advance and apologies for the noob Q's.

Drill your intake holes at bottom and burn that bad boy with some old pallets.

Pressure wash, wire wheel left over paint. Then re-paint with high temp paint.
I'd recommend high temp primer b4 paint.

Assemble, then Cook!!

No need to burn out a new unlined drum. Spray and wipe the inside down, assemble.

Rough up the factory paint with a Scotch-brite pad, then spray with high heat Rustoleum 2000 degree black. Use as that as a primer, and then paint whatever non heat resistant color you want over that.
