what is the lining they use in the barrels? How do I tell if the barrel is lined, or not? I am assuming if I am seeing clean metal, it is not lined??

I'm guessing paint liners are either epoxy or enamel based. The color is usually a brownish tan. I suppose tanks could be lined with clear poly.

Here's a test. Spray the inside of a clear drum with a little water. A day later, you should see rust if it's unlined.

That make sense. In the past, I used some free barrels to make my magnum cookers. They were unlined and would rust if left exposed. they contained a food safe oil used for machinery in a bakery. I have access to more of these, but they are the closed head style.

I seem to be discussing this in several threads, so I thought I would try to stick to this one.....

If I use the closed head barrels that I have free access to, and are unlined and food safe, and cut/grind off the top, what are my options for a lid? have any of you fashioned your own, or should I just use a kettle lid?

I like Kettle lids. But don't cut your drum till you have a kettle lid in hand. Drums vary in diameter and you want to avoid cutting it at a location that is either too tight or too loose for the kettle lid.

Default Drum Smoker lid.

I made my first UDS last weekend and smoked up a 12pd turkey with no problems at all. The issue I had was the lid. I see everyones pictures here and wonder how they were able to save the lid from the barrel. Where exactly are you cutting the barrel to keep the original top of the barrel as a lid?
I used an aluminum tray used to go under hot water-heaters and put Garage door weatherstripping around the inside. It fits snug and well, but I will be building another for my Father, and would like to keep the lid.

I would bet that is a galvanized pan. If it is I would ditch it. Most of the lids you see are from "open head drums".

When it says “rust inhibitor” does that wash off or do you need to burn it off?

How many ball valves do you guys have in the bottom? It looks like Norecoredneck's post he has 3. I getting ready to finish mine up. This is where I'm stuck.

I believe the norm is to have 1 valve and three additional air intake nipples.

One valve is all that is needed. If you go full open and don't get temp,remove cap and throttle back on valve. With 3/4" nipples I find at most I ever needed was 1 cap off 1/2 throttle valve. i put 3 nipples when making it , 1 for reserve.
