You should take that barrel to a antique store and sell it for enough to pay for a couple UDS's.

Ok guys here's my build

In case you guys are wondering where my name comes from, here's my project



My concern is this, barrel was burned out by a reconditioning company that burns it out in a furnace, I washed it out with soap and a Brillo pad. You guys think I'm good for seasoning?

Just wondering, where did you get the drum from? I'm also in LA. I used a reconditioned drum for my first UDS. I got it from Apex drum, is that where you went?

What is the best way to set up s new uds to double as a grill also? Will 3-3/4" nipples be enough or should I add a 4th?

i only have 2 3/4 close nipples that gets closed when i start to reach my target temp and then for the third i used a 1 inch ball valve to control the air flow to raise and lower the temp

and a 2 inch exhaust

never had any issues reaching that sweet blue that we all love to see!! LOL I can run the temp any where from 150* to 500* with just the ball valve to controling the temp.

That's funny I bought two off of them and showed them pics of my UDS. They are nice people and very helpful. Don't forget to wash out the rust inhibitor.
