Hi, My name is Mike I am originally from Minnesota but I live in Colorado now. My dad has a giant smokehouse on our family farm and have been wanting to get a smoker of my own for a while now so I started reading threads on this site a few weeks ago. I then decided to buy a steel drum to start a UDS this last weekend. I don't have a lot of smoking experience but have been cooking on a weber for many years now. I started burning the paint out of the 55 gallon steel drum I purchased this last weekend and built the charcoal basket for it as well but I am still curious on what people on this site have been using for their ash pans. Any and all advise would be great!
