I had to bite! What is that material around your drum?

I measured that BBQ Grates lid and it's close enough to a Weber in diameter it fits my WeberUDS without modification.

That deep bottom half sure does beg to become a tall lid doesn't it? I loved your use of the clamp ring, I'll be in the garage trying that combo for a fit tomorrow.

Loaded up with 20 lbs of butt.


Flipped half way through.


Pulled and ready to eat!!!


If you are looking to build one and have trouble locating expanded metal, Go to the closet organizer section in Home Depot and pick up one of these (11 bucks) it measures 16"x16" and is 10" deep. Just have to burn off the paint.


I realized I had galvanized washers and replaced them prior to use.
Nice job on the build. I like the charcoal basket idea.

I tightened the ring around the drum and the lid fits snugly inside so it might work out pretty good.

My drum was shipped to me new. The brown stuff is brown paper wrapping that I haven't removed yet.

Mineral oil has a flash point of 375* Don't forget to drill your intake holes before you do your burn.
I still can't tell for sure if it has a liner. Inside of my drum looks exactly like the 3rd picture that Pole d posted on page 328. I know to be sure I could burn it, but, it would save a heck of a lot of work if I don't need to. I don't know how to post a pic yet but if you guys would look on the page I mentioned I would appreciate your thoughts.

The picture your talking about does not have a liner. Did you wash it out ? If you didn't dry it good is there any rust starting ? Rust means no liner. If it showed rust I would just do a good season burn. Spray the inside with a good coat of pam, fill your coal basket and get the temps up to 400 and hold it there for a couple hours.

Default 2nd UDS

I finally got around to building my 2nd UDS and am doing a seasoning run tonight. Sorry for the lack of pics on the build (too much beer mod) I went with the k.i.s.s. build, the only mods made were the big belly mod, and a set of wheels. My question is its been going roughly 1 1/2 hours, and only reads 210* in the side gauge. I have one nipple, and my ball valve wide open, and am using the large bung for exhaust. Shouldnt my temps be higher? I was hoping for better control with this one, as my other one has only one 2 1/4" intake, and one 2 3/4" exhaust. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

You had it right the first time LOL!! I like the large hole intake as it is easy to empty the ashes, you can reach in and give the basket a shake and you can quickly ramp up the temps for pizza.

Except mine goes up the side (another big belly mod). I dont think i have quite enough exhaust on that one to get the proper draft. As for last night i shut it down around 11 and had temps as high as 250*. Ill give it another go maybe Friday or Saturday, and see what happens. Maybe with a fatty

Would oak fire wood be good enough to burn my barrel out with. I am having trouble locating pallets for the task.

I realy like the look of your smoke stacks, what are they made from, or where did you get them.

Oak is good. You just need some hardwood for a nice, hot fire.
