I just finished my first UDS. I was very surprised on how easy it was to make, especially with out access to a welder.

My next build, I might add a 2nd rack and a weber lid.

All my build pictures are on my blog @

I scored 2 55 gallon drums they had epoxy in them what would be a way to get them clean, it advises against using water they are unlined. Still lookiing for food grade barrels

I assume that a food grade drum with a tan linning is a bad thing too. It had pineapple juice in it.

Should I keep looking or use this one

Hckynt, can you start a fire in it and burn it out in Oakville without attracting too much attention?

Yah as long as it doesnt have to be a big giant fire, eveyone around here has fire pits in there backyards, and I even have a old drum that I burn brush in often. I am on my way to my uncles to get a propane torch and try it that way.

I got a brand new drum from work, but after reading about the "red liner" I left it there, and picked up a food grade one on the way home.


BTW

This is an awesome place

I have a friend that burned his out just fine with a weed burner. Don't know how long it took him, but he got it done.

Needs to season at least the time it takes to consume a 12 pack.

I gotcha. If I have a blob of molten steel when I'm done, I'll cap a hole or two on the next one.
