Help with UDS problem

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does anyone in the Baton Rouge, La. know where I can get a drum to build a UDS. I have been searching the area, called several wineries in the area and restaurants and no luck. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

im not in La. but try places that change oil, car dealership, service depatrments, drive around industrieal areas usualy around the dumpsters. once you find a few even if they wont work for you . you will know were to look for them and they will be easyer to find. just make sure you give them a very good burn. good luck

Have you tried craigslist for your area or close to it?

Yes I do at least three times a week. I will have to broaden my search further out,, which means more time on the cruiser

JJWdiver posted this a while back $15.00 for the drum and $30.00 shipping.I think I saw a few places that would ship drums in the UDS build section too.I got one from a car wash that had soap in it. Bill

Thanks Bill I'll keep that in mind, I do have a few places to check this weekend, but if I strike out I'll give eBay a shot. I am trying to go as cheap as possible but $45.00 isn't bad.

Do you have any bakery's in your area, they use honey that comes from drums. that is where i got mine

Put a wanted ad on craigslist. I had someone within a day send me a message with a barrel that had molasses in it originally. After the burn-out, the drum was caramelized and ready for a smoke.
