LOL!! I've been thinking!! Here's a thought. Everyone should have a KISS UDS to provide a benchmark for the 2nd drum that we are farking with. Nothing better than to have a loaded UDS puttering along faultlessly while you try to make another UDS better.
Here's another thought. If UDS keepers wanted cookie cutter smokers they would buy a WSM or a Spicewine etc. The building of a UDS allows some expression that would mistify an egghead! And maybe some of this expression will bring the UDS closer to the Eggs abilities.
BTW- all my builds are unique to my shop and work wonderfully.My intake is larger to allow for my climate and I bet there are more variations among the brethren than we can believe and that they turn out good Q.
So keep the ideas and trials coming- I for one enjoy them.
