Thanks!
Check with your local repair shop. Grease usually comes in kegs that size and the shops use them for their air greasers.

On page 486 I posted and added this link for a guy that did a mini smoker by basically cutting up a 55 gallon one. So I think technically you could create 2 of them from one big size drum. And the benefit is that you get the same cooking area (per grate) because you'd still get the ~22 inch diameter grate on there rather than something like a 16 or whatever gallon drum which likely will have a smaller radius/diameter.

I have been reading this thread for a few days and have decided that I need to build a UDS! I have been looking around and finally found a barrel today. Problem is that it had hydraulic oil in it previously. Will this be ok to use after I burn it out a time or two and clean it up?

Y'all have built some great looking smokers!

it will be okay...

Buck, do you know what brand of hydraulic oil was in the drum. I've looked a few MSDS forms for Hydraulic Fluid and they indicate that the stuff is practically non-toxic.

Sounds like a good, thorough, repeated scrubbing and a burn out or two should do the job.

Good luck.

My UDS had hydraulic oil in it and I did two burns with oak pallets that I got from my work and then cleaned it out at a car wash.

I then sprayed it with Pam cooking spray and did a six hour burn with lump charcoal.

It turned out great and the food tastes great.

The label on the drum says High Endurance Hydraulic Oil 68. I picked up a few pallets yesterday, going to cut the lid out either today or tomorrow and get a good burn going. Any reccomendations as to how long to burn it each time? I am excited and ready to start smoking!

If you didn't start your burn yet, I would wash it out first with hot soapy water, to get the worst of the oil out. Drill your intake holes before you burn it out, so the fire will burn good. Burn it out with a good hot fire, the paint should peel on the outside if it's hot enough. I don't go buy time just heat.
When you season it, get the temp up to 350-400 for a couple hrs. The UDS is a great cooker, have fun with it.

If anyone is looking for a barrel in the Evansville, IN area, O'Bryan Barrel has them cheap. I just picked up an unlined-reconditioned barrel w/lid for $9 because it had two holes drilled at the bottom, which are set perfectly for vents once I enlarge them. Normal reconditioned barrels are $15 or $20.

For the holes in the bottom for the pipe nipples is there any reason why a 1" hole saw can not be used versus the "step bit" alot seem to use?
