Just finished the UDS build yesterday. Smoked my first fatty this morning. Applewood smoked bacon, Bob Evans sausage, smoked gouda and sweet bell peppers. Turned out great. I need a little better seal to control temps, but was happy.
The top of the UDS is the bottom of a weber. I am thinking of cutting the lid and mounting it inside the UDS as a lip for the bottom to sit on. I like the bottom better than the top since I think I will have less of a hot spot with the wider open top vents. Plus I like how this looks a little more than just the standard lid.
Thanks for all of the great ideas. It took me about 2 weeks to read all the threads. Awesome work! Not sure why my pics are just links......sorry.....
