With this configuration, you could probably have 3 racks. How sexy would that be?

Just curious if anyone has tried it. I want to build a regular UDS, and then one of these like a WSM to see if it would work. I have sized the large charcoal pans at Ace Hardware and think they are a good match for the 22.5" drums. What say you guys? You're the UDS experts and have seen it all really.

I really will build these someday. Those who know me know that sometimes it takes a while for me to find the time to finally do some of the things on my wish list. So I'm serious about this, but don't expect me posting pics of my build this weekend ya know!
I built 2 UDS's based on the WSM...here is the sketch I used for dimensions. I used a flower pot bottom on the third shelf for a heat sink / drip pan. It worked great!
