What's a holiday weekend without some smoke? Got up at 5:30 to light the fire...9lb shoulder in the drum with a sweet & spicey rub I mixed up, coffee, blues on Pandora, and a good cigar. Happy labor day!

I found myself 3 barrels. I've been waiting for the rains to come so I can burn them out. I wish it was ready today as it looks like a great day for exactly what you are doing.

As for the wife, run in the house and click on the HGTV channel...

I actually didn't burn my out really. It only had honey in it previously...so I just coated the inside with vegetable oil and cooked a basket of charcoal in it, good to go.

Wife went back in after coming out for a moment, life is back to normal now

I was looking for a food grade drum but couldn't find one as easily as I had hoped. My step dad does roofing and has three drums that had water based roof costing in them with a removable liner. I figure if I remove what I can and burn the barrel really well, I should be safe.

How's the smoke coming? Assuming its still running, might I suggest finding a Padron 3000 Maduro to smoke while you watch it. That's my go to smoke for a nice afternoon. Not too harsh and not too expensive yet has a great flavor and holds a really good burn.

I dunno...I never felt easy bout using a drum that wasn't food grade. It'd prolly be fine I guess if you burn it out well enough, but if it were me I'd always be a little worried about it.

Chose an Ashton Maduro that my daughter gave me for Father's Day...bout to light it up now. I cooked the butt a little faster this time (kept the drum at about 290), it took just shy of 8 hours. Probably the best I've done yet...pulled it apart with a pair of forks and the family loved it.

Rubbed & about to get stabbed:


In the drum:


Mmmmmm....shreds so nice:


I did Italian roasted potatoes in the oven and put corn on the cob in the smoker after I pulled the shoulder out. I'm never cooking corn any other way I don't think, it was awesome! Very happy with my results:

Nah, I'm a northerner :lol: Although, I actually like Okra. I think that's a candle?

I was a little nervous but started reading up about building the UDS at a bbq forum. Many people say it's not a big deal to use any type of drum, as long as it didn't hold toxic waste or something of that sort.

The way I look at it, if I burn out the barrel until it's red hot, the chemicals should burn off/evaporate. When I cook, I won't be bringing the barrel to near that temperature so I shouldn't have any issues.

At least I hope.

I find it humorous that you don't know what's on your counter.

Most likely correct, that makes sense. Worries usually aren't based on logic though :lol:

Yeah...had left-overs today too, tasty! Now if they'd just let me fire up a stogie in my office, I'd be in heaven LOL

I'm only responsible for cooking...not decorating But, since I do the majority of the cooking and all the grocery shopping, I can say with 99.9% certainty that there is no Okra in my kitchen...pickled or otherwise. And actually, I just now remembered what that is. It's called "Cowboy Candy", it's basically Jalapenos in a sugary syrup stuff that a buddy made and gave me a few jars of. Good heat with a nice hit of sweet to go with it. Tasty stuff.
