Default UDS Final Pics - Flame Paint, Charcoal basket, Shelf

Finally finished my 1st UDS. Here are some pics. Recycled shelf & wheels. Weber lid, 2 shelves, homemade charcoal basket, plow disk ash pan, and my favorite, a flame paint job (2000 degree header paint).
I wish I had a CNC machine or knew where to get a couple of pig shaped metal silhouette's. I would weld them on the "fat man" handles.

Looks very slick. So did you just tape the base and then cut out the flames? As far as the CNC machine, I believe Smoker King has some access to a water jet cutter. Also, search for the thread on the midnight smoker giveaway. That guy in Minneapolis, KS obviously has some cool cutting tools.

Also, that is a very sturdy looking charcoal basket. I am guessing the center cylinder is there in case you want better airflow? What is that hook in the middle for?

Yes, It's left over "Frog Tape".

As far as the CNC machine, I believe Smoker King has some access to a water jet cutter. Also, search for the thread on the midnight smoker giveaway. That guy in Minneapolis, KS obviously has some cool cutting tools.

Also, that is a very sturdy looking charcoal basket. I am guessing the center cylinder is there in case you want better airflow?
Yes, I read where someone did some buscuit testing and discovered the the heat is more even from the outer edge to the center of the grate by doing this. Thought I would try it out.
Thanks for looking.

What is that hook in the middle for?
The center hook is for the ash pan. Kind of like a upside down steel umbrella with 3 feet. I can lift up the charcoal basket by it's self, then remover the ash pan. The basket has a slot so the hook will pass through the bottom grate.

I used it 3 times before I painted it. Had to sand all of the BBQ tar of so the paint would stick.

Sweet. My freehand artwork is not good enough for that, I have looked around for patterns, and only have found stick on decals.

I really like that side table too. One of these days I plan on mounting some Green Egg Mate tables on mine, only because they would fold down.
