You can get Dupli-Color engine paint at any halfway decent auto parts store.

Was in Wally World last week(charcoal coupon run) and killing time so I was checking out all their spray paint. They have so many types, colors and textures of paint. Any one paint their UDS with regular paint and have it hold up? I know they can get hot but it's not like when burning the barrel out with flames going up the sides. Thanks

No, I suggested it in the hopes you would buy it, have it fail, and then we'd all have a good laugh about it.

I just rechecked their website, it says the engine paint is good to 500 degrees. If you ever plan to crank it higher than that, they also have a high heat paintthat's good to 1200 degrees, but it comes in considerably fewer colors.

For the high gloss look you should high temp paint it however you like and then hit it with the high temp clear coat.

I use automotive paint in enamel or what ever I have or can get cheap at liquidators and it holds up without issue. I have never used spray cans though. I don't know how the new water based paints hold up but I would assume they are good. I will find out next week as I have a deal with a local bodyshop to paint my barrels with what ever they have in the gun. Should be interesting. I think that when you see a barrel with heat damaged paint that the cause may have been an unattended fire in a large diameter basket. For me with a wide open 2" intake and 2" exhaust , 16" basket- I don't think I could damage my paint. At least I haven't yet.

Default JD all your UDS Pics are gone

JD, any way you can reactivate links to the missing pics in this thread? I remember seeing them when you put them up the first time, and think they are a very worthwhile contribution, especially for the newbies.

Dang JD, even after you fixed it, there are some major ones still unlinked. There may be more, but here are some that I have found so far during my second read through of the thread.

I am very interested whether or not the single, BGE style, inlet works as far as heat distribution. I am considering using the idea for my new Stainless Drum.

Default UDS exhaust question

Hello, I'm new to the forum. I have read 50% of the UDS thread WOW, lots of info. I have not seen anyone run a exhaust down past the lid, like to the grate. Is this a bad idea? I ran mine on my offset down to the grate, but its like apples to oranges.

tnt, you don't need to redistribute the air flow in a drum like an offset as it is very even by design. Also, you would loose a large cooking area at the grate. A packer probably would not fit in the drum if you did that. That possible could cause a ho spot as well. Never hurts to ask.

Thanks Meat Burner. Another question, Does the ball valve work the best? I like the way Toyotatruckin has his set up. The less I bend over the better.
