Heat Pad or Stand for UDS?
 
Hi , im almost finished with my UDS build. I wil be putting the smoker on the back patio (concrete) but it is painted, do they make a mat or pad i can use not to burn the patio paint? Or should i just make a stand? If i should make a stand how high should i make it so i don't harm patio paint.

You can get those pads from lowes. Then go a step further by placing 3 or 4 bricks between the mat and the uds.

I put three caster wheels on the bottom of my UDS. They make about a 3 inch gap from the bottom of the barrel. I use mine on a cedar deck without problems. I do suggest using one of those BBQ pads under it though just to keep the surrounding area clean. I tend to spill a lot.

Use bricks. Keep any metal off your patio if you like it.

Yep, rust stains on a nice tile patio stinks. I put mine on some bricks or cinder blocks. Eventually I'll do som casters, but this is it for now

Yep. Plus it catches any grease that might leak out down the side of barrel. I've got a permanent grease ring on my deck!

Wheels for me, I roll them out of shop for use and back in when done. They never see rain. When smoking during rain I do it under patio cover.

Two straight wheels on back and a big bolt in front for me. The bolt on front is just a third leg. Keeps it from moving around on the wheels and is cheep. Garage door handle on front. Just lift up and pull to move around. I got my wheels from Harbor Freight for like $4 each. Highly recommended.
