As far as the UDS goes, how do I make one? What will the materials cost to make it?
Oh man oh man! Get your reading glasses.
You can spend from $25 - $250 on a UDS. I had around $30 in my first one. Once you have a UDS, you won't be looking for another cooker for a long time. It will easily handle enough ribs for 15 - 20 people. I have cooked 7 butts on mine at once. That was the most for me at one time. Started at just over 60 pounds on the grates.
