Sizzlepig, your probly ok as its not touching any food and nowhere near the 420 degree melting point of the zinc. I went down to the local muffler shop and got some scrap tube for free(guy was nice enough after i told him what it was for.)...I was gonna do the same thing but opted not to have anything galvy on the uds.

Thanks in advance and thanks for such a great forum.
Sizzlepig.
The stack isn't in the UDS so I think your worrying about nothing. Look at Bubba who has built many and uses plastic drain pipe. I have two to build on Saturday and I'm going to use plastic on them. I like the idea of being able to unscrew the stack when I'm covering the UDS for storage.

I think I'll be going with four for stability, if something can happen it will with me!!

Remembering back it looks evenly devided between 3 or 4 and u-bolts just add even more holes.......

Scored a cooking grate at K-mart for $5. Just need another one(I'm going for a double grater). Checking on a stainless dommed lid from Arctic grill.

Paul: Actually, the spikes get tighter due to soot buildup.

I also lookied into an Artic stainless steel lid. I recall they quoted me $30 or $40 and another $15 for shipping. They're located in mid MO.

I used 2" PVC on mine and painted it to match the purple and yellow on the drum( LSU)

Speaking of PVC pipe, is there a danger of chemicals leaching out from the Pipe as it is heated from the Hot Exhaust?
Just Wondering???

Ya, $27 plus shipping. Got tired of trying to find a domed lid cheap. But, my UDS is a $5 garage sale score. Oh did I mention it is SS!! I'm working toward an all SS set up. Have even found a SS fishing rod holder at a garage sale for $1.00 to hold my Mary Poppins rain top . If my neighbor gets off his butt and brings home some expanded SS metal for my fuel holder it will be totally SS.

SS top should be here sometime next week.

Default Started My Build (With Pron)

I dont have a welder so I had to improvise on my charcoal basket. Thank God for stainless steel zip ties. I was able to get to the point where I painted my finished drum and my basket. I will put all of the parts on tomorrow or this weekend. I need to figure out a lid. I do have a doner Weber but of course the drum is slightly larger so I will have to do some bending of the lip. I will post more pics as I complete this project. Thanks again for this site and all of the great info for this build.

Paul, could you put up a pic of the lid when you get it and the address info? I live in Kansas so the shipping shouldn't be to bad. Thanks

Rich Parker, Home Depot has the SS zip ties in the electrical section. I will see how they hold up. Here is a pic of the finished UDS during the seasoning burn. I still have to install the handles and the bottle opener.
