I started smoking on a homemade miniWSM this last summer. Borrowed a UDS and like what it can do, so I picked up a 55 gallon drum that held vegetable oil. Drilled (4) 3/4" holes around the bottom for intake, and burned it out with the HF weed burner this morning. I think I have most of the parts to put a UDS together. I have a weber kettle lid that I will use, along with the standard flat lid. Eventually it will hold two cooking grates. I aim to have this together enough and season Thursday night with olive oil and the standard Fatty so that I can smoke a prime rib in it Friday.

Gonna be late nights tonight and tomorrow night finishing this up ...

Good luck with your build and let us know how it goes. Pictures are good but not required.

Can't help you with that one mike5150. Not sure about Bludawg's thoughts either... Maybe he needs a blower circuit too.

Here's pics of the barrel before I burned it out with the weed burner. Started cleaning it up tonight with a wire wheel until the battery ran out. Will finish cleaning in the morning.







More pics in the days to come ...

This is the UDS I built for my brother-in-law for Christmas. He is a cop, and he loved it.

It's getting there ...





Basket needs a little more work, and I have a wire handle for it somewhere around here. Lid is in the process of being drilled (battery died again), and I do have a weber kettle lid I'll be using eventually. Will be seasoning tonight, and smokin' tomorrow ...

Okay, I'm a newbie to this site and have become addicted to reading through the many posts on this thread. Lot's of great info, but my ADD is kicking in and I'm wondering about the holes that are drilled into the base of the barrel. They are obviously for air flow, but do you need a valve on each hole? Or do you only only need a valve on one of the holes.

If was going to build another one...I would not use the valve I would use pipe fittings on all three. I seem to always leave it wide open to keep my temp at. 235-250 ish just my 2c

At Mason Dixon Bowhunta. You only need the ball valve on one intake. The first uds I built I used four 1/2 pipe nipples and I used a regular gate valve that is used on waterhose applications and to be I can keep it around 240 degrees just by using the caps on or off with the valve completely open. The next drum I built I got the drum from a friend with the holes drilled for 1/2 nipples but he messed up the hole spacing so there was a larger gap between one set of holes. I drilled a 1 inch hole in the middle of that space that space and installed a 3/4 nipple with a ball valve. That drum sometimes I leave one nipple off and regulate the airflow with the valve and sometimes I just use the valve with all the nipples capped depending on weather conditions. I believe that if a guy was on a low budget he could put in six equally spaced 1/2 nipples and regulate the temps just using the caps on or off a few nipples.
