I've got what appears to be the same #'s stamped in the side of my drum.

Here they are......

N1 A2/Y1.5/100/9

I'm curious to know what they mean too.

Default Thanks again fellas

Did my first cook on the UDS today (7.5 lb flat) Stated with the basket about 2/3 full with a combo of Kingsford Comp. charcoal, cowboy lump, cherry and pecan wood. With the ball valve wide open, it maintained a temp of 225*, with a cap opened it went to 275*. At the 7 hr mark, the probe slid in and out like butta with the internal temp reading 205*. Foiled and rested for 30 minutes and then sliced! Came out great very tender and moist. By the way cooked it with the fat cap up.

At the 12 hr mark I saw that the charcoal was still hot and decided to open all intakes to see how high she'd go. At 350* I closed it up to save whatever charcoal was left. I gotta image that it coulda went for another 3 hrs or so

Wondering why the smoke ring was so thin?

N1 A2/Y1.5/100/9

I'm curious to know what they mean too.
N = UN specification (should say UN according to my sources)
1 = drum
A = steel (H would mean plastic, G for fiber)
2 = open head (1 would mean tight head or closed drum)
Y = Suitable for packing group II or III products (X would be I,II,III; Z would be only III)
1.5/100 = liquids up to a specific gravity of 1.5, drum must withstand pressure of 100 kPa
If the drum were made for transporting solids this part would be a number (kilograms) followed by /S
9 = should indicate year of manufacture, in this case probably 2009
any fields beyond this would indicate country of origin, manufacturer, etc.

I think drums with "100" are 20 gauge, drums with "150" are 18 gauge and drums with "175" or "200" are 16 gauge.

I don't know what "packing group" means, and the actual spec is proprietary.

Default My new smoker and the first cook...

I like to keep it simple.. For my first cook I bought some Tri Tip roasts from Costco, Turned out very good, even while cooking in the rain. Smoked them for 4 hours at around 220...

Question from a FNG. I found a cache of about 50 drums of which i can have as many as I can haul away. Question is... they had water blown insulation in them. Safe to use? Thanks and i am looking forward to my first build.

Sorry for the delay in the answer but with that valve on there pretty dang heavy. otherwise not to bad. I'm going to bolt on some handles this week and find an alternative to that valve. Maybe look for a weber that would fit or something like that.

Cooked 2 shoulders, and 2 slabs on one level inside the drum. Burned 1/2 bag of charcoal for 18 straight hours with 4 chunks of wood.

Hey guys,


Thought I keep you guys posted with some pics.
As some of you know I recently bought 2 barrels with closed lids.
I don't know if I can find some loose lids but yesterday I found an Weber 57 cm./22.5 inch on internet for 20,00 (euro's).
It is allready mine I just have to pick it up and it's only a 30. min. drive.

The one thing that seems to differ most about UDS's is the Charcoal baskets.
I have a few Q's on this.

In your experience, is taller & less diameter better or shorter and more diameter?

Is 7 3/4" deep enough for a charcoal basket?

I have a piece of 3/4 expanded metal grating that is 24" x 31".

I can cut it into four 7.75" by 24" pieces and have enough for two baskets 15" in diameter.

I would like to try to get at least 2 baskets out of what I have, but how would you do it?

Thanks

Hey guys I have a question, do I need to paint the inside of the drum? And I have a little bit of the liner in the bottom of the drum. Is it ok to cook in it or do I need to try to get it out before I start cooking in it?

Not sure about the remaining liner, but I would want it out of there if it was me.

Do not paint the inside of the drum. Burning paint and food are not a good combo.

From what I have read, you are supposed to get the inside to bare metal. Then Wipe the inside with crisco and fire it up with coals in the basket and all vents open for a couple hours. This will "season" the inside of the drum and make it very rust resistant.

Post some pics of your build. We all love pics.
