    SS would be way cool for a UDS!

    It would be really cool but why don't you just lay it down and make a regular smoker/grill out of it.
  10. i was thinking about that also? wasnt sure which route i'm going to take..
    Now here my million $$ question....
    It came from a winery... no lining, do i still need to burn?

    Stainless will last you forever. I paid alot for a brand new plain steel drum without liner. The stainless barrels in my area were way to much money. Sound like you got a deal. Post some pics! [​IMG]

    When you pick it up, be sure to ask what the drum was used for. If it was used to store a consumable product then chances are it will have a food grade liner of some kind in it.
