View Full Version : New to the Q

Hi All,

I am a newcomer to the BBQ game -- not the eating, just the doing. So much so that I have not yet even got my UDS made. In fact, I came to find your site by searching for info/ideas on the making of a UDS.

So this weekend will hopefully change all of that. However, as I am on my second barrel (the guy cut a "door" in the first one I bought and I didn't know any better at the time) I can see that this could very well be a longer process than initially considered.

So I have a plan, I have a barrel (at least I THINK it's a good one) I have a fair few parts, and an idea about how I am going to make this bad boy. Now I just need a little time and hopefully there will be some smoked goodness by Monday.

Thanks in advance for the help/ideas.
