Thanks for the compliments on my UDS project.
Tonight I did the maiden voyage with my Ugly Drum Smoker. Got myself a chicken out of the freezer and prepped it for the beer butt thingie
Made myself a fattie. 1 lb Jimmy Dean sausage, sauteed up some onions and green pepper and garlic and jalapeno, then spread the sausage out flat and spread the peppers out on it with a few spices, rolled it up and stuck it in the freezer for couple hours. Here it is ready to go on the smoker.
Hey, what's that smell???
Awww, dad, how long's this gonna take?
With one port open and one closed, and the ball valve at about half, this thing settled in on 250 degrees and just stayed put. Man I love the constant temperature, I was able to go downstairs and work on other things while this was cookin' away.
The fatty came out like this. Notice I put a rub on one half of it, and that came out blacker.
This food was delicious!! Man I'm tellin' ya, where has this UDS been all my life?! Love this stuff, and it was so easy a caveman like me can do it.
More UDS action in my future, much more.
