    Found a drum to start my UDS.

    It originally held Simethicone, which is a pharmaceutical used to reduce gas, i.e. Maalox etc.

    Best part though is that it has a removable poly liner, with bare steel underneath.[​IMG]  15 bucks with a extra steel lid!

    Great score!

    You could have left some of that stuff in it.

    Then you could eat some good smoked meat, and avoid the gas.[​IMG]

    Actually, there's still some left in the liner. I'm debating whether I should bottle it and save it[​IMG]

    Just got a lid and grate for the drum.

    Went to my brother's last night, and he came home with an old Weber Performer grill that he bought for 20 bucks on Kijijji. He gave me the lid and the hinged cooking grate that came with it!

    Went out today and picked up the rest of the hardware to finish the UDS. I got most of it done tonight, but just need to pick up a charcoal grate from an 18" weber kettle to make my charcoal basket & then I'm good to go.

    Awesome score for you with the drum and even more awesome score for the wife. Congrats to the both of ya!!

    Its a pretty neat deal when you come across a drum thats all shinny inside like that.

    BTW....You have pretty durn good taste in jewelry, White Gold is the bomb. It makes them diamonds shine even better.

    PLS no Qview of the 25th honey moon, but a shot of the finished drum would be wonderful.

    Have a great evening.

    Hey,  you should set the ring box in the bottom of the drum and go out and show her the drum and tell her to look what you found in the drum when you got it home. 

    That should make her forget all about your new "smoker".

    Nice score with the drum. 

    Sounds also the you made a great score in a great woman 25 years ago.

    Congrats on both.
