uds build questions

Post by ejaeger » March 6th, 2014, 4:03 pm

I recently got a used food grade barrel, 55 gallon. I got it sand blasted inside and out to remove the paint on the outside and the red liner inside. The first question is should it be burned out still?

Question 2: weber replacement grates are listed as 22.5". Is that the actual diameter of the grate or is that the grill size it fits?

If they blasted it to bare metal, start building. No need to burn.
2. That's the ones I use. Check out Menards.com. Cheapest place I've found to buy em. Just make sure you order the 22 1/2". I ordered the 21" and it didn't work so good. :oopssign:

the 22.5" at Menards run around $9. Great value.
