i don't know what my problem is...i just got the WSM (haven't even cooked on it as of today) and i'm about to build a UDS. i'm an automation technician and we have a bakery that we do work for. i was at the bakery the other day installing a new dough mixer weight controller and load cell system, when out of the corner of my eye i see 3 pallets of empty 55 gallon soybean oil drums. i asked the guys i was working for what they do with the empties and they told me they make trash cans out of them. well, not being one to leave well enough alone, i asked them how many trash cans did they need to make. they laughed and said they were gonna hold them til such need arised. i told them i had a need for a drum and now...i'm gonna build a UDS. i just got the drum today and it is a closed top, so i don't know what the inside looks like yet, but i bet it has a liner. i'm gonna use this thread as the build tread and will start the work this weekend. it will be a slow build, because i'm WAY behind on my "honey do's" list. i'm pretty pumped about this.
