Mini UDS
 
I built this today. It's about 35 degrees outside and this little baby has been holding rock solid at around 230 for the last 2 hours. Because I'm usually cooking only for myself and my wife, I think this table top UDS is going to get a lot of use.

Mister Bob, what size (quart/gallon) pot is that? What is the top diameter? Looks very
interesting, would work great for me and the wife also.

Funny you should ask, I was thinking of painting it red. Now I'll have to for sure!

Cool!

I have the Mini Cajun Bandit and a BDS 1427 clone that are on a Smokey Joe platform.

Are you going to make a charcoal basket for yours? It doesn't take much to fuel the Mini's and for 2 people they are ideal.

I do plan to put sides on the charcoal grate so it can hold more fuel for longer cooks.

Have you seen the "Smoker Joe" mod on the bullet site?

Rocky has some nice pics of the BDS 1427 in action that convinced me you don't need a bigazz drum to cook decent Q!

A stainless steel dog food dish would make a fine waterpan for indirect cooking. just sayin'

That's pretty cool! I hadn't seen that, but it wouldn't have helped me anyway. My son backed the car over my Smokey Joe a couple of years ago. :doh: The kettle got mangled but I saved the dome!

At the time I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but I figured it had to be good for something. Then, I was introduced to the UDS by The Brethren and...:idea:
