Do most people use an ash pan in their UDS? If so, what is best to use?
I think most people do but there are a few people that don't have ash pans and they seem to like that as well. I just found a galvanized feeding tub at Fleet Farm and burned it off and use that under my basket. Its the perfect size.
If you would look in the build section of this site you will find a build with a built in ash tray. It was a spring clip ring that was added to to create a perfect ash tray. Here's a link to it for it was Wutang.
I use the charcoal tray from one of those cheap portable charcoal grills
i use a 16" pizza pan from wally world
Ditto. Bolted a pizza pan to the bottom with a couple inches of clearance. Works great.
Great ideas, thanks for sharing.
A disc blade on one
and the cut out lid of the drum on the other
No ash pan here, just have a removable bottom, works great for major cleaning but was thinking I would add pizza pan to mine just for eze of use. Otherwise I just shop vac it out.
