Virtual Backwoods UDS, What do you think?
Just messing around:

This is a 55 gal drum with a 30 gal drum set inside. The 30 gal drum has approximately 6 inches chopped off the top and sits a few inches above the charcoal basket. The 30 gal drum can be filled with water much like the water pan of the Backwoods Smokers. The smoke and heat will travel up between the 55 and 30 gal drums then down through the 30 gal drum cooking chamber and finally out the exhaust, which is situated right above the water line.

Check out other UDS's I've designed:

Interesting concept, that's for sure.

I think a detachable exhaust could be done, but unless you cut a door toward the bottom of the 55 gallon drum you're gonna have a helluva time adding fuel for a long cook.

I can appreciate innovation,but why? For innovation's sake, or does it make a UDS better? The reason a UDS is so popular is because of it's simplicity and utility. What's next, electric toothbrushes?

Cool idea but I don't see see a point in messing with the perfection that is the UDS! :-P

NICE looks good

I like it....and reverse flows are so much better in my opinion for low and slows. Such a even heat, that one just may work

Gotta admit I do like the way you think. Would it make a UDS better? Only one way to tell.

Inspiration and innovation. Nice concept!

You might be a visionary. Build it and they will come.
