well, I have destroyed the electric smoker for parts. so it is no more.
I have done some preliminary shopping and got some supplies, I will start the process of building it tonight. the barrell is a closed top, so I will cut it off, and since I am cutting from the top, the lid will no longer be any good, but I think I found a flat lid for it. I also tried my webber lid and it fits perfect. I will take pictures tonight of what I am starting with and take pictures throughout the build. I am super excited. a bit of construction on the UDS, a beer, and then a bit of darts and a beer, and then a bit of construction on the UDS, A Beer.... and so on.
