My plan is to take the 55 Gallon Drum I scored today and convert it into an Electric UDS. I want to mount the element at the bottom, mount a few racks, possibly a fan to convect if needed and then use a side smoke box so I can control the temperature and the smoke independently. On to the questions...
- How big of an element should I get (wattage/voltage)? Anyone have a recommended source for heating elements?
- Do I need a fan? Any sources fan that can deal with the heat?
