Greetings to all you veteran smokers!
I am in the process of building my first UDS and purchased a refurbished food grade drum. What is the best method for burning a drum? I suspect it's advisable to burn a drum no matter if it's "food" grade or not.
Also what's the reason for the 3/4" steel pipe nipple and caps rather than ball valves all the way around? Is it a cost thing?
Thanks in advance for your help!
