Has anyone tried to use a Brinkmann charcoal pan in their UDS? You can get an aluminized one that supposedly holds 15 lbs of charcoal. I could drill it out and then mount it on some feet to get it off the bottom of the drum. Otherwise, my new UDS is done.

How many times do I have to reply to myself before I can do a search? All this antispam stuff is a hassle. I just want to search for alternatives on building the fire box.

As far as the search use the google search at bottom of page. Little advice here, people are more than happy to help with suggestions. Members love this forum and take might take your post as an insult so have a little patience and enjoy and learn. It's a great place to learn.

Hi Norco! Just can't thank you enough for posting a how to build a UDS tutorial. I read your thread till the last page and followed every step you mentioned. And now my UDS is working perfectly and functioning like a horse.... I mentioned you and your thread in my blog as a sign of appreciation. More power to you....

Thanks. Just let it be known that the UDS is no one persons design. It has grown from ideas people have brought here, trial and error and sometimes civil debate. This thread is only my version of a UDS. This set up works for me every time. Of course within the main UDS thread there are lots of my ideas that don't get incorporated in the ones I build today. lots of ways to do the same thing. Most importantly is that you build it and learn to use what you have as each is a little different. Bragging rights over your own creation is worth the little cuts and scrapes while building them.

Thanks for the tip. I did finally see the search at the bottom of the page. I'm on several forums that use this style of template and the search is usually on the tool bar up top. Didn't mean to ruffle any feathers. I thought I had to reach a certain number of posts before I could use the search. I have been smoking stuff for a few years. I'm making the UDS as a gift for a friend. I only lack the fire box to make it complete. I think I"ll go to my local welding shop and take a look at his stock. I cannot find expanded steel at my local Home Depot. I think I"ll just leave it in flat grey primer, but paint some kind of logo on it. Probably a big orange tiger paw.

Thanks for the design tips. My friend will love this.

Here's a pic of my fire basket. It's a porcelainized wash pan from Ace Hardware, with a ton of big holes drilled in to it. Three inch stainless bolts for feet. Works like a champ.

All of this is true, but you have a knack for making it look so darn easy!
I am definitely using this thread when I build my own.

I cant thank you enough, or the guy who steered me to this thread.
Now, a quick question...My UDS is kicking butt! I love it. I dont have a charcoal pan below my coal box...so the coals just fall to the bottom. Is the only purpose of the pan to ease clean up after a cook?

I opened my lid during my first cook and some ash did fly up from draft i guess. would the pan under teh box stop this?

Thanks again to all who have helped me with the UDS design, this thing has changed my life.
