I just started building my first UDS, got hold of a food grade barrel (open lid and used to store Rhubarb Juice).
Drilled 3 20mm holes around the bottom and burned it out.
Got 2 Weber 22.5" grill racks.
Sanded down the paint residue inside and out and washed the barrel with water (shows a bit of surface rust right now).
Enlarged the bottom holes to 31mm to fit three 1" ball valves.
Drilled holes for the grates 7" and 14" from the top and inserted stainless bolts.
I'm still waiting for the charcoal crate.
Pictures will follow.
Regards from north-west Germany, Victor
