    UDS Temp Control

    I built my UDS using 2- 3/4 intake ball valves and using a 8" pipe in the 2" top bung for the exhaust. Built a 15"x10"h fire grate sitting 2 & 1/2" from the bottom, the cooking grill is about 24" from bottom of fire grate. Read a bunch of threads and cannot get the temp to stay even at 225º. I...

    Thermometer For My UDS

    I can't find any decent thermometers other than at BBQ Galore and they are way overpriced. I found 1 at WalMart made by CFM Corp (made in China) with the brand name "Grill Care" $15.00 It's really feels heavy duty, it has a 2 & 3/4" dial, plain face no pretty colors with a 3" probe. It takes a...

    Fishing Trip PG-13

    Four married guys go fishing. After an hour, the following conversation took place: First guy: 'You have no idea what I had to do to be able to come out fishing this weekend. I had to promise my wife that I would paint every room in the house next weekend.' Second guy: 'That is nothing, I had...

    Stranded PG-13+

    One day an Irishman who had been stranded on a deserted island for over 10 years, saw a speck on the horizon. He thought to himself, 'It's certainly not a ship.' And, as the speck got closer and closer, he began to rule out the possibilities of a small boat or even a raft. Suddenly there...

    Burning A 55 Gallon Barrel

    Got mine here. Looks like they are only in Arizona. I just drove down and picked it up. They also have the larger 85 Gallon ones. Look in your local Yellow Pages under Barrels & Drums. Good Luck.

    Burning A 55 Gallon Barrel

    Well winged it by the 100 or so threads I read. I really need to get a better fire cage. I picked up a small Weber like a 13" one for $5.00 at the swap meet. Drilled a bunch of 1/2" holes but I think it is to narrow and sits to high. So here is the project, it took longer to get the parts than...

    Burning A 55 Gallon Barrel

    Okay, when 1st joined, said I would have dumb questions. I guess my last post was way beyond dumb due to the lack of response. I assume since the drum is new I just oil the inside down with lard and do a couple 2-3 hour season burns at about 300º. By not doing the real hot burn-out to remove...

    Burning A 55 Gallon Barrel

    Decided I wanted a new drum $40.00 as the one I got was used for unknown product. I was told it was for waterbased paint but not sure. I will use it for a rain catch or charcoal storage. Want to be safe. Anyway, since this one is uncoated on the inside is there any reason to do anything other...

    I am officially a Drum Head!!!

    Thanks Bubba, I have a couple ball valves laying around, I know what you mean by cheaper! My hard part is going to be the fire cage, not a welder. Trying to figure how to make one or find something that will work. May need to make a trip to the swap meet.

    I am officially a Drum Head!!!

    Getting ready to build one myself. Could you tell me why you used a ball valve and the capped off air intakes. Do you need to uncap the vents at times, could I just use a couple extra ball valves for air control? Are more than one needed? Thanks

    Burning A 55 Gallon Barrel

    After reading BBQ BUBBA's post on his smoker I had to try it. Went and got the barrel today and will start working on it soon. A dumb question, when doing the first burn-out's can I use Eucalyptus logs? I know not to use for smoking/cooking but is it okay for the burn out? It burns real hot.
