Finally finished the UDS, here are some picks of seasoning burn and some chicken, fatty and a ring of sausage. Hated to waste all that good heat and smoke. :-D

Everything looks good except that little bitty ice chest. When you took the two beers out, it was probably empty. :biggrin:
Slow and low requires a much larger unit for holding adult beverages even if you are from Texas.

Tex, that some real good looking Eats there on your first cook. And a sweet looking UDS you made. I just scored a 55 gallon Barrel Extra Heavy, not sure why, but it weighs a ton, was filled with Commercial Grade Latex Paint for Concrete, had removable cover and lock ring. paint was used for DOT Bridge. Guy said he had 12 more he needed to get rid of, was an out of State Contractor .they do have a red coating inside.

Mine had some kind of varnish on the inside..... tried to burn it out, but wound up using a wire brush and a drill motor to strip it down to bare metal...will look for drums with no coating nest time.
