Meyer Metal Works and My New UDS Custom Grate

I've mentioned talented friend Matt of Meyer Metal Works in the past. A few weeks ago Matt made a custom grate for my drum and I couldn't be happier with it!  I've been too busy to take pics and "show off" the new grate but finally.... here it is! :)

 My drum...(How I built it if anyone is interested)




The new custom grate, inspired by my Sittin' by the campfire in my favorite chair pic








                           











The grate is heavy duty, made from 3/16" thick steel. The handles on this sucker are heavy duty too. It should last me a lifetime!  I know it will outlast the drum, and when this drum wears out I'll just use the grate in a  new one. :)

Not sure if you will see this but if you do, Thanks Matt!! Can't say enough about how much I love this grate. You do excellent work!!

That grate is a beauty Jeanie, That Matt does some fantastic work. I checked out your drum smoker too again. Sometime when I don't have so much stuff on the go, I want to build some kind of smoker, maybe that will be the one.

Hope you have a nice weekend too! :)

Mark thanks! With your talent it would take no time at all to put a drum cooker together. You probably have the spare parts that you need laying around too! :)
Looks like you have been getting a lot done at your place, it looks great!
Hope you have a nice weekend too. :)

That is way cool cowgirl. I looks as if they used a laser to cut it out of the steal. My best friend works for a local company here that builds power station and stuff for the mines. Anyway his job day in and day out is to run the laser and cut all the panels out so they can weld them up. His company makes some really cool stuff on their spare time. I will have to post some of it on my blog.
