Found the website looking for drum smoker ideas (one is in my near future). I am somewhere around page 76 on the Great UDS saga thread. Lot's of great ideas, the best being KISS. I borrowed my brother-in-laws UDS a couple of times and I can't wait to build my own. I think I have a couple sources for cheap barrels, already some other supplies sitting in the garage waiting to go.
I love ribs on a UDS, wildgame is good too. I want to try some antelope sausage on the there as well. There is a lot of great ideas that I've seen so far, I think I've gained weight just looking at the posts.
Had a Weber Kettle grill
Have a Weber gas grill & Little Chief smoker
Will have a UDS ASAP
Greetings from SoCal - you will be amazed, amused and inspired on these forums - enjoy!

Welcome. My family is from Cutler. Lots of other fam is spread around Visalia and Tulare. My advice: start befriending the apple and peach orchard owners. In about 3-6 months you're going to be jonesin for a stickburner so might as well start getting your wood piled up now! LOL.

Welcome from a little west of you.
I second JiveTurkey and get taking to the fruit/nut farmers and get a wood pipeline going.

Thanks Jive Turkey for advice on fruit wood. I have lots of friends in the Reedley-Dinuba area and should be able to score on peach, plum, nectarine, apricot, or whatever.
What size chunks do you recommend and how do you cut it? I've got chainsaws but should i worry about the chain oil contaminating the wood?

Big T BBQ - I got lots of connections to treefruit farmers, the hard part will be deciding which flavor of wood. :-D
