Just finished up my first UDS build! It's dented, choppy and Ugly as Chit but the lid fits tight and everything sealed up well!!! Mostly used what I could find laying around, borrowed some tools and LUCKED OUT on a charcoal basket (HVAC buddy of mine had his metal guy slap one together for me, I owe him a meal!) total to get it done was $80 and some change, best part is that total includes a bag of lump charcoal and 10 lb BB ribs for the first smoke!!! Pictures to come soon. Thank you all for the assistance and motivation, there's no way I could have done it without the Brethren:)

Broke a handle but the other one is still intact. Nothing some Duck Tape cant fix!
And on the other side I used a bit of improvising to give me an adjustable intake!
Only has a single rack for now but I will probably add another later. Pick up my charcoal basket tomorrow and I will smoke some ribs for supper! Seasoned it with some olive wood and KBB in my chimney already so it is good to go!!!
