I'd go for it. I got mine for $51 and even though I didn't have to burn it out I did to burn off the outside paint.

You can get a complete stainless steal barrel for $75? Aren't they more like 10x that price?

Haha make sense now. I was about to book a flight to phoenix and drive a uhaul full of them back at that price. My buddy works for mcmaster carr and he got me a brand new with removable lid unlined for $60 with his discount so I'd think anywhere around that price for unlined is worth it. If found cheaper, great.


On a side note, when you store your drum, do you leave a vent open or is it sealed? Would you think keeping silica gel packs or a larger desiccant packet to keep moisture down would be helpful to control service rust prevent mold growth if stored for a while?

I put a pie pan of white uncooked rice in mine out of habit in PHX the humidity in not really an issue daily and this is the only time of year we can get even a little bit of dew in the mornings on car windows or grass. In Georgia I left it closed with 2 pans of rice. Not really sure that did much but I never had an issue.

Great question for one of the experts on UDS.

cook with it at least once a week and you are good to go

normally, when I finish cooking I clean the grate and then cover the cooker. I imagine that with the residual heat, it dries up any moisture that could be in the cooker.

I may start on it this weekend. Temps will be in the 50s and out of the 30s. I’m still at the mercy of welding out doors. Texas had a winter this year. Who would of thought?

Had a little time before I have to pick up the kids from my parents. Hopefully this is done this weekend before it rains.

With the 16 gauge steel, I decided to use the flux core on it instead of the stick welder. I’m still burning through my practice steel. Just need to do a slight surface grind and the grate holders will be all set.





The 29” next to a 22”.

Drum smokers (like Gateways /Hunsakers) or actual UDS's? Not that it really matters- it is pretty cool considering all the different cookers available.

Different tools/equipment for different purposes. Top fuel dragsters go "really fast" - but probably don' t make great taxis.
