S-winey, if you are referring to the above photo; No! It's a 30...count the pavers...2-years, last April."

And I do more smoking in my Weber...old 23" from 1973.

Doubt you could find a SS salad bowl that is 23" in diameter...

I would not want to go any smaller than a 55 for my personal uses, and honestly wish it were bigger when cooking certain meats for more than 6-8 people. Looks like you're off to a start with a clean straight drum. Can't wait to see the finished product

KC; cannot disagree. Just a POV caution...

Me rarely chefs for more than four.
Just stuff. Charcoal costs...have me own apple trees/wood, I trim.

Gents... What I was looking for input on was the "straight" drum (pictured), vs the traditional barrels that are all over CL.

This is a new, unlined 55 gallon straight drum with removable lid . $88.
Seems like it would make a really nice UDS

I like the look of the straight sided, open head drums. All of mine have been the normal, ribbed ones- that's all I could scrounge up.

I thought the straight drum was a foregone conclusion. My bad. I think at that price it is a slam dunk

Here is alternate exterior view of 30 gal machine... I might mention chimney square inch size has a bearing on smoking efficiency.

Default I just built my first Ugly Drum Smoker

Hey all you UDS experts.

I finished my first build. I've been cooking with it a ton and I love it.
I made a video of the build...

https://youtu.be/Ai-CwUaOs9s

I'd love to get some thoughts and feedback from the pros on this forum.

I doubt this will be the last one I build.

Thanks!

Use lump charcoal instead of briquettes and you'll have much less ash to deal with.

crevice free / smooth sided barrels are what they use to make one of the best drum smokers on the competition trail - Hunsaker Smokers

Go for it. I don't think you'll regret it!

Hey all, I posted this in the Q-talk general forum. Decided to post in the UDS sub forum.(forgot about it) My question is, do you see this on your UDS exhaust? I run 275 for all my cooks and only one 1 exhaust is open at a time depending on wind. Had an issue with to much airflow back feeding into the drum when both were open the entire cook and I lost the temp I was trying to achieve and the temp got out of control. So since then I run one exhaust and my intakes open a smidge and can hold 275ish for a long time. I guess I just want to make sure I’m ok with this seeping out of my exhaust stack? It hardens up after everything is cooled down and have to moisten it to get it off. See pics of set up and issue. Thanks

Just now saw this! Thank you for the kind words :)
I've loved cooking on it. I've posted some more videos recently!

I managed to fit 6 pork shoulders on it! Here's the video for that https://youtu.be/mocdFvsLMqk

Most meat I've ever cook on a UDS (or anything for that matter).
