Twins, with pron
 
I finally finished off the twin UDS that I had scavenged the parts for.

I tried something a little different with the basket. I used a deep dish pizza pan and the charcoal grate from a 18" kettle. I used stainless hardware and stainless threaded rod instead of bolts to save some $$.

Here is the final product. I used a deep fryer thermometer inserted through a hole in the handle. The handle supports the thermo along its length.

The thermometer reaches pretty close to the middle of the drum. I drilled a 5/32 hole and it fits perfectly. The thermometer can be pulled very easily but still forms a tight seal.

Here are both ready to go.

They need a quick clean up and a seasoning but soon I will have three UDS chugging away.

I use flexible magnets. Cheap and simple.

Nice! Where did you get the lids?

ComputerMike 08-30-2009 08:10 PM

The lids (grate and handles) are from a Charbroil kettle knockoff. I bought both used off CL so I'm not sure where they come from. Wally World I think.
