Ash Pan?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi All,
I'm in the process of building a UDS and I have a pan that I believe to be Galvinized and was wondering if a guy could burn that old nasty stuff off in an open fire? I know it produces a poison gas when heated but i didn' know if it burn off completely.

I've heard that you can. But if it were me I would find a different pan, and not risk it. Just my opinion.

Go to the second hand store and buy a pizza pan made from alum, ive see these used, and that is what I plan on using. Some say the temps need to get really hot to burn the galv off.

If you don't know if it galvinized I would pitch it and get another pan from something thats not going to be galvinized. Go get a pizza pan lik coffee said or somthing that is used for cooking.

Or don't worry about an ash pan. They're (drum smokers) not hard to get the ashes out of in the first place. I have never used one.

A big Thanks guys!!! PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
I wasn't sure, and I knew that galvinzed stuff put of an evil gas when it gets hot so I'm pitching the thing and will either get a pizza or just go panless. I'll try to remember to post pic of the finished product.

No need for an ash pan, I just shop vac mine out and I'm all done.

If you are going to use one stay away from galvanized!
