I am not used to working with metal and didn't realize how quickly they would show surface rust (even though they are in the garage). I was dealing with more rust then paint which is why it wasn't burning off. I worked them over again and this time sprayed them with PAM since it will probably be a week till I touch them again. I'm excited about this project again.

What a great read.........
 
Greeting from the New Hampshire Seacoast.
Well, this looks like a winter project for sure. Just looks too good to be true!
I am originally from Middle Tennessee, and we had a few good BBQ joints around. Since I got the bug and started doing this I have noticed that most cookers are built to use indirect heat, but all the pits I went to growing up used some type of cooking directly over the coals. Maybe that is something that I can add back to the arsenal. I do have a Hasty Bake that you can cook over the coals, but it is a drafty fuel hog and it is hard to keep the temps down.
I doubt there is a question unanswered in these many pages, but I have a request-does anyone here have any "complete failure" stories from their UDS? Just trying to think of what not to do as well as what to do.

no such thing as a complete failure with and UDS

swamprb 08-29-2007 09:37 AM

Yeah! I took someones advice not to turn the meats, not a complete failure, but I was not pleased with the finished product. Since then I always turn and have not been disappointed!

It's official, I HATE you guys with a passion!!!!!!:-D
Here was I, progressing along life's highway like a happy boy, when I discover you'r forum. Not only has it driven me to purchase a Weber Go Anywhere grill and a Rapidfire chimney starter whilst pursuing inventive ways of retaining moisture in my meat whilst grilling, now (despite collecting several old propane cylinders to build a reverse offset) I'm giving very serious consideration to building a UDS!!!! A local company sells drums on Ebay for £7.00 (I might even be able to get one from work gratis), the cooking grilles are about £14.00 each new from Weber or I'll buy a sheet of expanded stainless mesh and make 'em, I can get valves for air regulation from the skip at work, I've already got some steel to make a base frame and I think there's some castors lurking in my shed and the results you've all had look sooooo tasty.
What's stopping me? SWMBO saying "but I though you were going to make one out of gas cylinders?"!!!!!:-D
I hate you lot:razz:
p.s. when I build one (see, when not if you gits!!!!) is there any point including a water pan in the design, purely to keep the meat moist, or is this wasted effort?
