Minimalist UDS

This is going to be a pretty simple build, but I wanted to document it, if only in appreciation for all the posts that made it easy to figure out.



Found this barrel... When I saw what it had held I thought it might be a sign.

Drilled 3 1 inch holes at the bottom and installed 3/4" nipples. Now to burn it out.


Oh yeah, better burn the lid, too!


Still need to build a charcoal basket and install bolts for the grill. Timing depends on the weather and the voices in my head. ;)

I have to burn my lid as well. Did you deal with any warping of the lid. I'm worried about it getting too hot.

Didn't have any problems with the lid. I rotated it a few times during the burn so the heat was even. It seals fine.

Good to know. Thanks.

Charcoal basket: weber grate, 6" high expanded metal, Walmart pizza pan for ash catcher:



Pork but and a pig's foot about to cook:



How did they turn into pork shots?



I need to get into the habit of taking pics. So far I've done ribs and abts, both of which I thought cane out better than on my akorn. OTOH, the akorn fits on the porch so I can use it during our monsoons...
