Default Newest Additions to the UDS family - the TWINS

Well I told the wife I was going to build another UDS. This is where the trouble started. She said fine with her, buttttttt, it has to have wheels so she can move it around and it has to look nice ( setting on the patio ). It's a UDS I said. Well, you know the old saying; If Moma ain't happy.So this is what came out of the build. The Twins.





This is a slide show of the build process.

Good looking kids you have there. Do you have 4 ball valves on each drum? I can see three.

I like your fire basket and how it is attached to the rack. Is that a water bowl?

Thanks

The lids, fire grate, 2 cooking grates, handles, and the bottom of the fire basket came from a pair of damaged kettles I got at Sears. here's link to thread about the kettles.

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=40612

The basket is welded to the grate and then bolted to the bottom of the kettle I cut off. The holes were already there, for the legs. Worked out good.

That tool is a drum deheader, they are very handy to take out the bottom or the top of a closed head drum. Here's a link for them.

http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...7597_200317597

I took out the bottom of the drums and then used the original lids on the bottom of the drum. They fit very tight when used on the bottom lip. then used the kettle lids on the original top of the drum.

The wife is very happy.
