Now I just have to weld a bottom on to the basket and put a ring around the ash pan.

nice work my friend...... NICE work

I seem to recall that some one else tried that early on in this thread... Had the same problem where it acted more like a chimney and less like an air intake...

I think Bubba was the one that came up with the extended valve handle where the valve is down low but he attached a threaded rod to move the handle so you don't have to bend over (not a pretty picture) to adjust it...

Ya did good, it's all about learning, building, modifying, and repeating...

HotandCold,

With mine I used an 18" nipple.
This is well below the exaust and seems to work well.
Also made my riser 1" while the other two intakes are 3/4".
This was suggested to me By H20Loo.

I did get a couple of puffs of smoke out of it while seasoning the drum "wide open", but during my cook last sunday I had one 3/4" intake open and the ball valve 1/2 to 3/4 open and had no trouble at all with it.

I might even change it to a 12" riser just for comparison soon.

Step 1 complete, well sort of anyway. I got my barrels home tonight although I have to go back for the lids and clamps since they were forgotten at work. 3 drums, lids, lock rings, and clamps to mount the drums vertically to each other. That might have possibilities down the road. I didn't think $10 per drum was too bad.

I didn't look too hard at it tonight but the coating in these drums looks more like paint than the coatings I have seen before. With any luck thats all it is.

Now the decision......burn or sand blast

Default Conflicting thoughts on drum prep?

So... I've read most of this thread (though not quite in order... go figure), and I know what I'm doing for my UDS construction, except that I've seen some conflicting reports on what all the prep is I need to do for my drum.

I have a reconditioned drum that has paint on the outside. The inside is unlined but has a light coating of rust on the entire surface. The rust comes off with a wire wheel fairly quickly. (Though in a perfect world I could be lazy and leave it alone... lol)

Should I do a burn and then take the wire wheel to it? Burn and then just throw some oil on it and season it with a charcoal run? Wire wheel and then burn and then season?

Sorry - just a bit confused on what prep I need to do based on the condition of my drum.

Thanks!

Sounds like this comes down to how fussy you are. Knowing how black the sides of my drums get I would only wire brush from the grill mounts up and then do a good seasoning but if you think there could be any harmful residue in the barrel well then I would do a real good burn or two also. Get 'er done - the weekend is almost here and its time to make some good eats!!
