Default UDS build has begun!

Did a first burn out on the barrel last night and rigged up a charcoal basket. I've got a second burn out going right now. I want to do a third, but rain is in the forecast for the next couple days, so I may get slowed down. Charcoal basket is 19" wide, 12" deep (9" for fuel, 3" below for ash), with a handle so I can grab it with a gaff. Wish me luck!

I'm addicted already. My first barrel didn't turn out the best but I think I'll still love her. Ready to build the next and take my time!

Have fun!

All right a new drumhead.
That charcoal basket looks it could last through an explosion! Well maybe the grate could not but the rest sure could.
Don't forget the food pron, that is what we really want.

I rigged this up out of the middle part of an old outdoor fireplace I had sitting in a barn collecting dust. I just cut down a old 22.5" grate for the bottom, and used the outside ring from the grate for the handle. I planned on making one out of expanded steel (and eventually will), but the fireplace part looked like it would work.
