Drum lining

Post by Zoohouse1 » March 4th, 2016, 6:49 pm

Newbie to the forum and the UDS , but not new to smoking . Want to make a ULGY DRUM SMOKER ,but how do I tell if the drum is lined or not. I have heard it is harder to burn out the lined ones

:welcome: I'm no expert on the whole drum lining thing but the drum I made a smoker out of was lined and had a shiny red oxide look to it, I have seen another type lining that's a goldish /tan color. If you can acquire a bare metal drum I think you would be much better off. I've never burned one out but I hear it's not much fun.
