need 30 gal UDS help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey guys

 

I want to build a small 30 gal UDS to take camping with us.  Are they capable to keeping and holding the low temps that the 55 gal UDS are?  That is my main concern.  2.  Can you find grill lids and grates to fit a 30 gallon build?  3.  How many vents and what size do you install?  I truely will only put in one vent, as I plan to install a digital stoker on the unit.

 

What size firebox do you need to build, and  how much charcoal will it use?

 

If anyone has any detailed photos or plans of a 30 gallon UDS build, I'd LOVE to see it.

 

Thanks for looking

 

Dan

Can anyone point me to maybe a craigslist ad or anything for a used 30 gallon drum? 55's are easy to find, but I can't seem to locate a cheap 30 gallon drum.

 

Thanks

Dan

If some of the sellers of the 55G drums are dealers, contact them and ask where you could find a 30G.  Since they're in the business they may have connections.

 

Good luck,

 

Curt.
