It's feels sturdy enough to me. Will probably be adding some angle iron like the hunsaker.

Why is it you seldom see food grade 30 gallon drums? I want to do build a UDS but I really think 55 gallon might be overkill for my situation.

Why do you say the 55 gallon may be overkill?

Space constraints in terms of where to store it, lack of need for additional cooking capacity over the smaller drum.

Grainger sells unlined drums for $129. Stainless steel for over $700. Unless you’re talking about Craigslist...

30 gallon drums are not a common. 30 gallon drums with an open head- less so.

Do the 55 - it's really not that much bigger. They are easier to find, cheaper to buy and you don't have to use the extra grate space if you don't want to.

Don't do "food grade" - go "unlined". If it has a phenolic liner, you'll need 2 or 3 good fires plus some heavy steel brush work OR a friend with a sand blaster to get it all gone.

I understand that.
Think about this. The uds cousin the pbc I understand is 30 gallons. They have to hang the larger meats.

The 22" diameter is just about enough to lay the larger cuts of brisket or ribs.
Get the 30 but you may have to hang, fold or bend some longer pieces of meat

That's a good point. Actually, more I think about it maybe the space constraint wouldn't be that bad. I've already got a 22" kettle out on the patio and this would be a similar footprint.

Is a propane weed burner not sufficient to get the job done of removing all of that at once? (Plus some wire brush after the fact to remove the remnants?)

plus, you can grill on the uds and get rid of the kettle if you wanted to

OR, you could just smoke on the kettle and forego the uds altogether. only thing is you wont get the fat dripping flavor(my favorite) but the kettle still puts out some GREAT Q

Curious about this also. My drum had coconut oil in it and is unlined. I know a lot of people say it has rust inhibitor but to the touch it feels like metal and even sanding a small part its only metal.

I want to leave the paint that's on the outside too but that seems to be a questionable thing for UDS builds also.

The rust inhibitor is a coating or film that can be washed out with soap/water and a rag. its not the same has the thick solid liners in some barrels. Then you wipe down with vegi oil or pam and season.

Ah so most likely mine wouldn't have had it since the coconut oil would have kept the drum from rusting?
