But after seeing your approach I think that's a lot easier and probably what I'll do.
What you trying to say ? I'm lacking in talent ? heh heh . I saw this guys build before started mine ,he did a nice job on it , seemed like more time and effort than I wanted to put into it . I just finished it today I hope to try it out this weekend , Hell I just want to eat some good bbq !

HAHA!

I'm just thinking it's gotta be easier to cut the straight lines for the design you picked rather than the precise curvature needed for the "T" design so the barrels sit correctly on top of each other.

And rest assured, my drums are ugly. :) I've got not artistic ability at all.

Hi Guys,


Greetings from Cape Town, South Africa.

I could only read untill page 265 before the urge to Q got hold of me. This concept of Q is very different to our way of preparing food, but boy, did I enjoy it!

Here are spome pics! Enjoy

Flips good show Bru looks like you did good I hate to tell you but this addiction only gets worse. Keep reading and don't be afraid to ask a few ?? along the way. Give us a lesson on Biltong sometime. Your Drum look great.

Well I am off to a good start on building my first UDS. Found an unlined food grade barrel for $15, burned the remaining corn syrup residue out, got three 3/4" close pipe nipples and a 3/4" ball valve installed, got the position for the bolts for the main grate drilled and managed to get a free 22.5" Weber grill from a co-worker. I had to use a grinder and a wire brush to clean the Weber grates off but beyond that the only cost was to go pick it up. I also ground the lip of the barrel so the Weber lid will fit. Last night I got the ash pan and base of the fire box made and just need to wait for pay day to get some expanded metal from Lowe's.

Sounds like a golden opportunity to start a little business or restaurant. :) Let few people try it out and decide what's in your future.

So I've read every page on this thread and my eyes are crossed, but I got my first UDS done today. Seasoning it now. I'm pretty happy about it. Gonna try it out tomorrow with a fatty and some ribs!! Wish me luck!

Here is my UDS. The barrel is a bit wrinkled, and the lid is a little large, but it seals fine. Have some pork smoking in it right now :)

The basket was made at my neighbors welding shop. The handles are a rake handle I cut into three pieces.

On my test fire, it held 230 for 6 hours. I went to bed then, so it probably kept it there a few hours longer. The temp management is much better than my cheap upright.

Work of art. Seeing that it appears to be running under a covering, all UDS users HEED THIS WARNING:

Do not leave your smoker unattended when it's uncovered!

It can be almost out of coals, looking like it's almost dead. But if you leave it uncovered, 10, 15 minutes can go by before it finally starts billowing into a flame thrower reaching over twice its height and lots of heat!

Don't burn your house down.
