I went at it one more time. First turn it was off. Bonus was finding out it's an unlined drum .

Here is an example of where I bought mine in Phoenix;

Sunwest Container

Completely agree with you. I searched for 'container Minneapolis' and found a new drum for $51.

That is a RPi Zero W indeed - it is merely used to host the webpage for the HeaterMeter controller.

hi 10miler I was in able to reduce the temp I think to much air got to the coals and it just wouldn't shut down enough to drop before the pork belly was done

bit of an update though I have purchased a barrel with a lift off lid and am in the process of swapping all the pipework and thermometer to it I also have some heat paste to seal the holes so the only way ir will get into the drum is through the valve/taps

There’s been a Craigslist post that shows up every week. Guy builds custom UDS and I emailed him more so out of curiosity than anything. He quoted me $450. I guess he has to eat but damn... hell of a markup.

That would be a hell of a business to get into for those prices. I know people would pay that around here. Hmmmmm

$450 might be a bit high, but look at the PBC prices, $799. I get there is more stuff in them.

I just built one and I'm sitting just at parts, $180 into the thing. Now if I were to take that up a notch to being a full custom cooker, powder coated and all that, that cost is going to go up as well.

I've also not charged myself for my time and labor! See the attached image:

The one on the right is the one I just built. here are the basics, Barrel $15, Tel Tru $45.20, rack was $18, coal rack was $10 then all the rest of the hardware.

If I were to build them, just standard, no paint or anything $250-$300 wouldn't be a bad price point. They are ten times better than any COS you can get at a box store for the same price. I know, I just got a Char Griller at Lowes for total of $300 and I'm going to smoke more on my UDS' than it lol

All my BUFORD drums cost me more than $450.00. But, f course, they're not basic drums.
I've sold only one unit to a friend, he covered the material costs, about $500.00.
$500.00 drums aren't for everyone, i haven't quit my day job.

This is what comes with a $450 UDS:

*New 55 gal Drum - Powder Coated single color of your choice
*Charcoal Basket - 16 pound capacity
*3" Professional Adjustable Thermometer with upgraded 4" probe
*Custom Cool Touch Spring Handle
*One Cooking Grate
*Digital Thermometer Probe Port
*Three Intake Ports
*4 All Steel Casters

The exhaust is just 8 holes drilled around the lid.

Got a pic of said $450 UDS? A rock solid UDS can be built for under $150, maybe even $100 depending on how much of a deal getter you are.
