Can you post some more pics of your new firebox.

Well after reading this thread "twice"! I tackled my first build. Thanks to all for the ideas!

Burning out freebie barrel..


Making firebox out of old grill..


Firebox done..


Decided to trim Weber lid to fit into drum lid..


Lid cut out...


Fitting..and it worked. Brazed it together after grinding porcelin off in a few spots.


Air intake..


Twin racks and test fire..


Test chicken..


A bit of paint and shortened a handcart to bolt to barrel for transportation. Going to raise it 2" to keep off of ground before bolting together.


Ash poker in cart hole..


Sorry if this is to long, but thank again to all your posts for ideas!!

Quiggs of Lake Havasu!!

Bob,
I am pondering the idea of using expanded metal and bending it like angle iron to make the entire thing lighter. One thing I like about this design is being square it pulls straight out and you have to screw up to hit any of the grate bolts and with the pullout ashpan the dumping of ashes is easy.

The slide out ash pan is a good idea too. I've thought of a variation - Will start on it tonight. Make the basket separate and put a second shelf in so you can use it for grilling or smoking.

Got everything I need so it's just down to measuring and cutting..... Watch for pics.

Yeah, you could have a slide out basket and then slide in one up higher 6" to 8" below the grate to grill on. Or have the basket and ashpan as one piece that could slide either down low to smoke or up high to grill. Ain't this chit fun?????

I went with a short inner barrel that you can pull out. It also works for stand-alone grilling. Then there's NORCO's method of lifting the drum off the lid. Either of these methods seems more straightforward than making a slide-out tray but hey, I probably just don't understand your concept Bob.

Well, I want to thank everyone here, for all the work done to help us find our way to the UDS. I still have to make the coal baskets, having an issue getting some expanded metal. Hopefully tomorrow will be the day? I made two of these. And I will be making a kart to attach one on each end with a table in the middle. The guy who does my powder coating on the brew stands I make, said if I wanted to tie these in with my brew stand, all I would pay for is the sand blasting and paint,About $30.00 each I said done! [ATTACH] 25283[/ATTACH]I kept with the basic Idea's and there not quite done yet. The only thing I added was to the intakes. I put a chain on the plugs so I wouldn't lose them or step on them. I'll post more when I get my baskets done and then the kart. I'm itch'in to season these things.Thanks again from everybody involved.

P.S. Hey Bubba...Do you recognize them?
