Ugly Drum Corn Steamer that is!!

I have always done corn in an old galvanized garbage can [ burned off] but dont think the local HD will appreciate that!
I cleaned out a 55 gallon drum, burned in big ole blazing fire - attempted corn paint job Embarassed
The concept is quite simple - I place 3 bricks in the bottom, set grate from retired webber on bricks - add a couple gallons of water - fill with corn, husks on - set fire [ or set in fire pit] once steam appears, steam for 25 minutes - every ear of corn is done! They hold nice in the cooker for about 4 hours before they start to get squishy!
Of course the ears can then be rolled over coals or held in smoker to add flavor!
I have 2 weddings this summer where they have requested 200 ears of corn, I am building 2 of these just in case, but an hopeful I can get all 200 in one if I stack them nicely! I used to get about 70 or so in a 25 gal[?] garbage can just dumping them!

Found corn today - 5 ears for $2.00....not sure where its from, but good for a trial run!
Put 3 - #10 cans as spacers for grate to make it easy to retrieve the few ears...

Added the ears...pleant of room left Embarassed

Put the roaster / steamer up on my custom burners on the Lang - I stood on the burners next to the cooker - if it can support my 260 pounds, it can handle a cooker of corn! Cool
About to put a few top sirloins on the grill to go with the corn - some German dumplings on the stove [ Ma's old world recipe]
Its my youngest's 19th birthday - will try to take finish pics!

Thanks guys - got the money shot - thin, blue? steam!


The back-up unit, in case I cant get 200 ears into one!


the red ones will most likely become basic grills - time will tell


the sacraficial barrel, will spend its days as a burning barrel - gotta get rid of that pig grease somewhere! Shocked


this is my old "official" slab of maple used exclusively for chopping off the ends of ears of corn.


dont ever want to put that one in the fire box!

Totally dig it! But riddle me this, Batman.. Whats
this German dumpling thingy, and what makes it
German? Curiosity aside, I'm expecting to be hosting
a German exchange student begining in August,
and might be able to score some brownie pts - not
looking to unveil any Family secrets, but a general
understanding would be nice... Smile

I guess its German cuz my Momma is, and said it is!!..lol

2 egg
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp salt
1 3/4 cup regular white flour
2 tbsp butter
mix to gooey consistency, drop tablespoonfuls into boiling water - 5 min uncovered, 5 min covered.

I like making them in home made beef gravy, the wife and kid like them in plain water then add salt ands butter once plated. Either way they are simple and old school good! Irregular shapes of dumpling doughy goodness! We make at least a double batch for the 4 of us!!
Let me know how it goes!

Thank you so very much! I look forward to trying the
recipe out - Not to mention a possible mini UDCS! And
how awesome is that, by the way? You probably just
coined the name of what is sure to become a new
standard for the outdoor cook!
