I started 2 UDS Builds

Post by Bricklayer2 » May 28th, 2018, 4:19 pm

Well I have been looking, observing and I decided to build two Ugly Drum Smokers. One will be themed after the company I drive for and the other after my favorite tractor brand. I was able to get two new unlined drums and new lids. So I have made a little progress.

I painted the drum with high temp paint and an enamel Water Green, hope it stays on.

So all the stainless fittings are in place and now on to the lids!

I was able to get a little work finished this weekend:

I am sanding the lid both sides instead of burning paint off so not to warp the lid. As soon as I find two old Weber lids I am going to fab those to replace the flat lids. :kewl:
