I picked up 3 55-gallon drums with brown lining a few months back but have been busy with work and home improvement projects. Been reading a lot and trying to get some consolidated info. Going to build my fire basket (actually doing 2 of everything to help a buddy that is deployed).
I see some people use around a 13.5" basket/8-9" high and some use 17-18"+. Can you post:
size of basket
average burn times at a given temp
size and number of intake/exhaust holes
? I do a lot of pork butt in my MES and sometimes takes 24+ hours at 225deg.
How many pork butts do you think you could fit on a 2 rack UDS?
I'm going to consolidate some info and start my post within a week or so. The wife is getting me some pallets from her work for the burn out. The other option would be some old wood I have in the garage (treated). That brings up something interesting I read. A lot of pallets use treated wood. Not sure if external links are authorized here but....
Thanks for the info and I look forward to sharing my build.
