I have one 3/4" and three 1" holes and will regulate intake airflow using refrigerator magnets. No nipples or valves needed. K.I.S.S. (life is too complex; q is for relaxing)

thanks Ed. Just out of curiosity, why is one of the holes 1/4" smaller than the others?

Mine is modeled after a drum I used that just used aluminum foil to plug/unplug intake holes as needed. I thought with just one 3/4" hole it'd cruise low(er) and slow. The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of fridge magnets, so they could all be larger. I'm gonna keep the one 3/4" anyhow.

After thinking about building one of these for years I finaly did it, but I didn't do it for me.

Gave it to dad for christmas.



Even after reading how stingy they are with fuel I was shocked to see how little it used.

This is after burning full blast with all three vents open (dont know temp, my therm was pegged at 500) for 3 hours, 350 or so with only two open for another 3 hours, then closed all but one and let it go all night (midnight to 8am) it was 235 when I went to bed and 197 when I checked it at 8. Total burn time of 15 hours.

We had 2/3rds of our kingsford left.


And the christmas pig was cooked on it.

I just completed my UDS this morning (would have been done yesterday, but I was short a bolt), and I wanted to add pics of my UDS to this thread.

Honestly, without all the great help in this thread I don't think I would have had as easy of a time as I did putting this together. Thanks everyone

Fired up my new build for standing rib roast today ...





Took it to 126 internal, rested while au jus was cooking, then seared in high oven. Probably could have cooked it a litte longer, but it all pretty much disappeared this evening ...

I'm just guessing, but maybe he wants a stick burner at times.

I like access and adjustability. Starting the fire and dropping it in from the top and not being able to make any "adjustments" if needed is not a good idea too me. With a standard UDS, you have to remove your grates, meat, thermos, etc. if you need to get to the fire. Big PIA IMO.

Advantages:
1. Start the fire outside, slip it through the door. Easy.
2. If there is any adjustment needed for the fire, simply open the door and access the fire basket.
3. Need to add chips? Open the door, pull out the basket and add.
4. Need to stoke the fire, open the door, pull out the basket.
5. Too hot? - Pull out the basket.
6. Need to add charcoal or bring the heat up fast, simply open the door.
7. Clean out, open the door and wash out.

I have the time, tools and skills, why not? This feature makes the UDS a simpler, convenient and more practical smoker to me with access to the fire basket at any time.

This is my 5th BUFORD build and the adjustability and functionality is awesome.
