Default Best $46 I have spent in a while

Any UDS builders in Northern Virginia, I found a place in Manassas called Sandblast America. They blasted my barrel for $46 (1/2 hr labor). It came out great. Although, no good stories like running for a hose as huge flames leaped out of my barrel because I stuffed too much wood in or the guy at the self serve car wash cussing me out for power washing a barrel there . I'm painting and finishing up this weekend.

I would use both of those stories when sharing a few beers with your smoking friends.
Sounds like you are on the right path to being a pitmaster.

Glad ya got your drum done. What is going to be your first cook?

Just a thought... though some might find humor in your remark,
to others it would indeed be racially sensitive.

Nothing like a huge fire in a drum over a 12 pack

Nice find! I had mine sandblasted too and it's well worth the cost.

never even considered sandblasting... now i will. I have an extra food lined drum in the garage that needs cleaned out and the burn did nothing. I was dreading grinding/sanding it out. Good Idea
If God didn't want us to eat meat then why did he make cows out of steak?
