Hey, he's making money. Kinda like going into a place and paying 25 bucks for a half slab of ribs and they suck (or, ah, don't have the correct flavor profile). Still I give them credit for doing what they love and getting paid for it.
I built my UDS for 35 bucks 4 years ago and cooked a brisket on it Saturday night!
