My wife thinks I am crazy for putting $50 into this. She would not understand ordering a $300 BDS, especially when I am considering buying either a Klose BYC or a Spicewine type smoker next year.
Please don't buy a Klose bbq smoker or any other one from any other company if you are consdering building a UDS. I made the big $3000.00 mistake of buying a texas lone star grill and it arrived with a bent smoke stack, and damages on the back like it had fallen over, with deep scratches every where. The builder and the delivery company have done NOTHING to fix the damages. I am going to have someone come and fix it. And it has been three months since I have had the smoker. So just build your own out of a 55 gallon drum. I've since build 2 after getting my texas smoker and like them better any way. But I have to admit, I haven't used my texas smoker cause I can't until it gets fixed. TOTAL waste of money!!! UDS is the way to go.
