Doesn't even look like the same barrel, great job! That's professional quality work. 

Note that I didn't include any close ups of the paint job😉 Spray painting definitely isn't one my strengths.

We did a ton this year but this has to be my favorite. My parents helped us build this in our family room.  

Almost finished building myself a new smoker, will get it done tomorrow before seasoning it and hopefully getting some ribs cooked. Sunday morning   Monday afternoon   

The biggest thing I haven't been able to fix so far is the lack of a simulator.

Ah yes daughters  - They're precious at this age. Don't ask me about what they're like when they become teenagers.

Really happy with how how it looks, and hoping it cooks as good as it looks.

Holy sh*t that looks awesome!

are you following a guide or anything like that?  Do you have to treat the inside of the barrel or anything like that?

Today was getting back into the basement and doing final touches after a year hiatus. Once it became livable I stopped. Was a lot doing it myself.

today did the basement stairs drop ceiling (not actually suspended just glued in place. Next will just be finishing trims. Last will be the windows (same as stairs need to glue ceiling grid in so it has a finished look).46E4AC17-2742-444A-B26E-D56E08AB74B2.thumb.jpeg.25cf34a899b725c70f7ad19b2f1e4db1.jpeg

I'm on Smoker Builder forum, their YouTube how to videos are great. I got some plans with where to put everything from them.

The yellow painted on liner came out reasonably easily, burnt out the drum and then scrubbed of the residue with a nylon scrubbing brush and powder cleaner. I had to get the flap disc out for a couple of patches that the fire didn't get first. My first UDS had a red liner that was impossible to get out.

Once I'm finished putting it together I'll season it by wiping the interior with cooking oil and running it reasonably hot for a couple of hours. It works the same as seasoning a wok or cast iron pan.

@Peaksy68 keep us updated on how your temp control goes. From what I've seen on the BBQ forum I'm a member of, the risers for the intakes aren't as effective as having them just come out 90°. Looks good mate. I like what you did for your exhaust. I used a Weber lid with two daisy wheels in it.

I was having temp control problems with the old UDS. It has horizontal intakes, but smaller diameter. I'm hoping the vertical intakes will hope reduce the impact of the swirling and strong wind I get here. I get it adjusted then the wind changes to blow straight in, or stops blowing. It's fine on calm days, but we get 2 of those a year! 

Intakes are 1.5 inch, exhaust is 2 inch.

I'm installing a heat shield and block off plate which should help with efficiency and control as well.

I got the mulch done in the front gardens yesterday despite it being 92°. Here's some before and after shots with one selfie about halfway through.

This bedroom had a drop ceiling and wood panels on the wall when I purchased it. I can't find any insulation behind the walls and there is no closet so I'm going to fix both things and do the whole thing over completely especially since the houses wiring needs help I'm going to tackle this room then combine two small ones into a nice big room.
