Thanks blackdog043. I am running it wide open now. It is a cool 48 degree night don't know if I can get it over 380 where it has been holding for a while.

Hey Guys ..... I'm picking up a drum today and I have a few questions about building my UDS. How hot does the bottom get? Will installing casters raise it high enough that it won't be a problem? I noticed that Bigmista uses some kind of planter under his fire box. I guess that keeps some of the heat off the bottom. I'm new here so please bear with me.

Remember why you are seasoning it and throw a couple fatties on. The UDS will be nicely seasoned, you will have your first pron and your family will be sold after their first bite. Fatties are almost mistake proof so temp swings are not a problem.

WalMArt has weber knockoff 22.5 cooking grates for 12 dollars. My ribs will never know the difference. They are just a bit thinner than the weber grates.

I have mine on three evenly spaced bricks and it does not affect the wooden deck it's sitting on. The barrel doesn't really get that hot anyway.

When I purchased my Ole Hickory CTO Smoker I had an executive chef tell me to get a pound of bacon and lay on the racks and crank the smoker up. Just another idea.

You don't want to drill holes in the bottom of the barrel if you want to keep the missus happy. She won't be keen on dripping grease all over the deck or patio. Just prop the barrel up on three bricks and you're good to go. As has been said, the bottom does not get that hot.

Tell us more about your design. Is you lid sealed well?

That brand also come with hinges!! I opted for the cheaper version @ biglots $29.95. The grills are for crap, but the lid is usable.
