so im starting my first uds build..
unfortunately the dreaded red liner is in both of the barrels i have..which i will burn and scrub out later..
ive started tho, by drilling 2 holes on 3 sides of the barrel.. the first is 6.5 inches from the top of the barrel and the 2nd 15 inches..
they will be for the bolts holding the grates..in the middle somewhere i will put a thermo..i have a question tho..what are you guys using as an ashpan? i have plans to attach some expanded steel to a weber grate with legs..but im not sure what to put under that to collect the ashes..im not putting a door in the barrel..
