Starting my uds build.

Postby Joernolav » Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:28 am

I got so inspired by TwoguysBBQ's fantastic uds build that I had to start on my own.

Started with the burn out today. Do I need to remove the red lining or is it it ok that it stays there?

Didn't notice but my wife asked what I've been doing. I had some burned eyebrows and the little hair that's left on my head was also burned

From what I understand that liner needs to be burnt out.
Sorry about the eyebrows 8) I can’t tell you how many times I’ve burnt the hair on my arms. :laughing7:

Thanks.

Or a hot dog with bacon. I always bring these telescopic stick when I'm out in the nature. Very practical varming something over fire.

Regarding the project it will take some time. I am an accountant, running a small company together with my wife and a couple of employees. The next few months are busiest time of the year for us.Image

I googled a bit after I read your answer. Most people say it must go and that it is a hard job. Then a guy wrote something I felt was logical. If the lining is still there after a few burn outs with the drum almost glowing red, why should it go? When smoking we are operating on much lower temperatures. The drum will also be seasoned which also protect the lining a littlebit from the heat.

I don't want to make food that's potentially toxic so probably best to try to get rid of it.

I could not agree more, your "diners" the folks you cook for, are trusting you with their very life, so your job is to reward them with a healthful meal.. :cheers:

When and if I ever wear out some of the cookers and the wife allows me to replace some of them, a UDS is definitely on my radar along with a ceramic grill, for the UDS I plan to seek out a barrel that had food contents in it such as canola oil or other foods, that way a burn out for the seasoning will be the only need... :salut:

Yes. I totally agree with you. The drum I have was used for pizzasauce so it's food grade. What I don't know is what that red lining releases when it's heated. I don't know it consists of.

I have now tried to burn out the lining twice. In the last burn I filled the entire drum full if birch wood and lit it up. Probably warmed the entire neighborhood. The red lining is still there! Uncertain about what to do. Went to local store yesterday and looked at the Weber smoking mountain. It's a nice smoker, not as cool as a pretty built uds IMO but probably higher WAF.

I don't think it's from the sauce. I've read that it may be some epoxy stuff. Tried with the drill and steel brush. Will come off but will take several hours to get it off.
