Looking good man!!! I am considering making a UDS for myself. Even moreso after my neighbor had 4 of them dropped off at his house on friday evening.

He owns some kind of insulation and siding company and has access to all of the empty barrels. I have no idea what he is going to do with 4 of them...he doesnt cook. Maybe storage or something. All I know is that I am going to take him some Q and ask for one. PDT_Armataz_01_08.gif

Great looking brisket, I like the idea of having a UDS; just not sure what kind of drums are safe to make them out of.....oil barrels or what?

I was wondering the same thing mossy. My thought is that nothing good for you usually goes into a 55gal drum, so there must be a way of cleaning them for food safety. I need to do some more research on this topic.

Nice looking chow. Love that smoke ring. I have a drum and plans, all I need now is time.

ask for a food grade barrel, like nuts or juice .They have an inner liner that you need to burn off, after that assemble an cook. I had a problem with mine getting to hot but with the advice on here I was able to fix it.(exhust pipe to long ) Ya me and the old lady ate the whole thing!PDT_Armataz_01_15.gif

Almost any barrell will work, just burn it out real good!!

Again - What Bubba said!
Find a drum, burn that puppy out GOOD. We're talkin' a HOT fire. It should burn most of the paint off the outside of the drum.
Only drum I might not consider would have a radioactive logo on it. PDT_Armataz_01_23.gif
It might cook stuff without fire in it.
