Matter of preference. Valve works for me. If they are clean 1" holes 3/4" nipples screw in and can be welded or locked in with conduit nuts. Someone didn't read whole thead.

I realize I can easily put in a valve.... I should have been more specific. I would rather not put in 4 valves since I would never use that many. What do I do with the other holes is my question?

Close pipe nipples with caps. Valve partial and one cap off gets 250 ish for me. 2 caps off, partial valve gets 375 ish. Fine tune with valve. Make sense?

Default Work In Progress

I started on my UDS today, I cut 4 holes on the bottom and I have 4 - 10" 3/4 nipples ready to be welded in tomorrow, I also bought the expaned metal and will be making the basket as well.
I live too close to people so I went ahead and bought a weed burner and spent the better part of the evening stinking up the neighborhood.
I bought a webber 22" grill and stainless steel bolts to hold it up.
so far so good. I'm hoping to cook on it this monday.
I know if there ain't a picture it didn't happen... here you go!

I will post more pics as I go along

I ended up with an extra hole, think it was about an inch and an eighth.
Greenlee screwup Mod.
Ended up covering it up with a speaker magnet. Works great.

Farking numbers are hard to read sometimes.

Nice weedburner. Will save some knuckle hair. Harbor Freights are too short.

Default Slight Rust

Ok just how clean does the inside have to be.. there's a little rust in this barrel but it looks like just topical .. I could probably use a brush and scrape all of is off.. is it really needed.. does anyone have any (Cheap) suggestions for getting it off?

Thumbs up Cheap Solution.

Build a fire in it and cook something!
That thing is good to go.

As long as it's rust and not paint. I always wash stuff off with a heavy mix of tide in warm water. Cuts grease and other stuff. Blow off with compressed air or shop vac on blow and then season with pam.

What sort of temps are you running? With those four holes it must be like an inferno.
