Nice build. Interesting idea about converting to a grill. Just curious if having the intakes about 24" below the basket makes any difference in how it draws. The UDG I built has the intakes in about the same position as they would be for the UDS.

With the fire up high, it cooks just like my Weber kettle. I guess I should trademark it and call it the Mush Creek fire basket LOL!

Great firebasket. The only problem I see is those fat U-Bolts might fail if your were to load about 4500 lbs of meat on there..(g)

That's where it came from, spendy but stainless and fully adjustable.

I might have inspired Mush's build but he wins with the grillin basket idea!!!

I smoked some andouille last night- the drum held 225 perfectly! I made a throttle tube out of conduit (far left in the pic), but I'd eventually like to make a SS one. I added a bottle opener- SS, of course!

That is a great looking Smoker / Grill. Love it, nice idea with the U-Bolts and Fire-basket. This is truly inspiring, if I could only weld .

The only welding was the fire basket, and all of that could be done with bolts and washers. The fire doesn't know it's welded! Git yer drum on!

I received an email today from Artic Products concerning the purchase of their 22.5" stainless lid. It was quoted at $27.95 plus shipping and handling. I think this is a pretty good deal for a proper fitting stainless lid.
