The dawning of my UDS. "The Cool Hand Luke Project" (PRON)
 
I have been wanting to build a UDS for grins more than anything. I'll use it for doing my comp. chicken I think. I had a inmate in our maint. shop build it for me. It is on it's way to our powder coating facility up by St. Louis to be sand blasted and powder coated. Unless I change my mind I'll have it painted a deep blue with a silver ring and lid. A co-worker ordered me 5 more barrels today. Funny how everybody wants one at work now once they saw this thing. I have started a BBQ frenzy. This is a hoot!:-D Here are some pics as it progressed. The pics were taken on my Blackberry so they aren't very clear.

Inmate,I guess he would have some spare time to help out.He looks like he has skills.You should start sweet shop,the labor cost wouldn't be much.

The labor rate is around $.60 /hr. yes 60 cents!:eek: He gets out in May so I gotta get what I can out of him because the next mate might not be as good as him.

well if the states money is being wasted at least its being wasted on a sweet arse UDS. looks good man. i just started my first UDS today.

Very nice build. Will you put another grill in up higher or will you use a diffuser for the long cooks.
I can't wait to see it powdercoated.

I guess I should say that this is being done through our Vocational program and I pay for all materials and labor charges to the state. This all legit and I even have to pay taxes. The prices are just AWESOME!!

There will only be one grill inside. I will have a deflector plate cut out. I'm thinking of having it with it's own legs and a handle on the top so I can hook it to remove or place it. It should be back to me around Feb. 10th. As soon as I get it back I'll post the finished pic.

I like the way you think.Make sure he doesn't get out for good behaviour.Is that a shank I see.
