Of course within the main UDS thread there are lots of my ideas that don't get incorporated in the ones I build today. lots of ways to do the same thing. Most importantly is that you build it and learn to use what you have as each is a little different. Bragging rights over your own creation is worth the little cuts and scrapes while building them.
I cant thank you enough, or the guy who steered me to this thread.
Now, a quick question...My UDS is kicking butt! I love it. I dont have a charcoal pan below my coal box...so the coals just fall to the bottom. Is the only purpose of the pan to ease clean up after a cook?
I opened my lid during my first cook and some ash did fly up from draft i guess. would the pan under teh box stop this?
Thanks again to all who have helped me with the UDS design, this thing has changed my life.
