Default The ugliest uds ever!!!!!!!

I made this UDS out of 20" Caseing. I cut the caseing down to 3 feet, but it was 4 feet long and weighed 230pds. I think its around 200pds now.

I am going to burn off all the protective covering.

I used 3/4" threads and brass ball valves for the airflow on two sides, then just one open 3/4" thread on the back.

I have two racks and a 12" tall charcoal basket. I think I'm goin to have to make it a little smaller.

My carrying handles crack me up, maybe a little over kill.....on everything!!

That should hold some heat nicely. What are you planning on using for a lid?
