I'm also seeing the same questions time and time again!

294 pages for me. I set the site to display 20 posts per page so I'm not needing to flip pages so often. What same questions?

Just wanted to drop in and say hi. I joined this site for this thread alone! I found some plans of the big baby smoker and immediately started hunting down some drums. The more I looked around the more designs I found that had me thinking. I love the efficiency you guys are getting from the UDS but I really want more cooking area. I finally came across the design below and think this is the route I'm going to go.

I got a hold of 5 barrels the other day and I'm going to go to work on cleaning them up this weekend. I'm going to build a couple simple UDS' for a friend and myself first then tackle the T-Style smoker. I think it will give me a good compromise between the cooking area and the efficiency of a simple UDS. So here's my start...

Can't wait to get started! Back to reading, I'm only about a 5th of the way through this monstrosity of a thread!:becky:

Bruce--

How about a close-up of those wheel mounts? They look great!

And those intakes seem bigger than the normal 3/4. Are they?

I built a UDS a couple years ago and love it, but I'm about to build another one using an 85 gallon drum.

For those of you who have built a UDS from an 85 gallon drum, did you use the same basic set up as a 55? For my 55 UDS, I used three 3/4" intakes with one ball valve and then eight 1/2" exhaust holes in the lid. Do I need to change anything for a bigger drum?

Can't wait to get started on my new, bigger UDS.

Here's where I'll be getting my drum. :biggrin:

Wow! A UDS nursery!

captainrock39 05-08-2010 07:45 PM

Finished my UDS yesterday seasoned it and doing a length of burn test today set at 250 and capped 3 and the other is open. Lets see how far it goes on time with the load of charcoal

Anyone on here have a ring lever lock they dont want. My Lid just about fits perfect but i want to try putting a lever lock on to try and close the small gap. (55gallon)

h20loo 05-09-2010 12:15 PM

I've got a few of them laying around but the shipping would kill you. I remember trying a few different rim clamps at the barrel warehouse before I found a good fit on my barrels. Taller barrels are often a little smaller in diameter to equal the 55gallons. Good luck
