That is insanely cool! I wish it was in English. What do you guys think about his adding a water pan?

I measured the drum and the i.d. Is 21 15/16 inches & 34 inches high. Where do i need to put the thermometer?

Start at the top of the thread and everything you will need to know is in here. Trust us it's something that needs to be done to help understand why the UDS works the way it does.

Best of luck and take plenty of pictures or everything you have a question about.

Default Awesome!!!

Read all the pages and decided I need one of these UDS. Went through my first build and did a "seasoning" fire last week. Yesterday I did 2 whole chickens then filled in the rack with wings. The result was wonderful. What impressed me was the ease of temp. control. This is going to be nothing but fun to work with. Thanks to everyone who posted ideas and advice on the build. This forum is great!

You got some reading to do.

No shortcuts here.

Hey Ron, now all you have to do is get it to bake bread and you'll be all set.

I just wanted to post that today I cut into a 55-gallon drum to make a cooking rack soaker out of one end, and I measured the wall thickness as 19 gauge steel. That's .042" thick. This is handy info for anyone planning to weld to this material. I don't know if all drums are made from the same gauge sheet, however.

Here is my version. Almost finished. Still need to finish the charcoal basket and make some tweeks here and there.

After a little more research, I have found out that drums come in 19, 18 or 16 gauge steel. The 16 ga. has nearly 50% more steel than the 19 ga. drum. Maybe that's why some drums hold temp better than others?

Thumbs up

Good thinking!!!
It all depends on the manufacturer.
Same goes for the diameter of the top lip,
they can vary by as much as 3/8".
That is why I say, get your lid first!
Take it with ya when you go to purchase a drum.

DOT drums have a code on them that denotes thickness and style of end attachment. It tells someone in the know what is allowed in them.


UN1A2/Y425/S; UN1A2/Y1.2/100
