Default Great cheap UDS cover

Hey guys, I searched quite a bit for UDS covers and I hadn't seen this yet, so i figured i would post it here. It may have already been discovered but its been great.

It seems as tho brinkman has designed a smoker cover just for us UDS guys. It fits perfectly length, width, and the top is even domed for anyone using a weber kettle lid. My only gripe is that it fits so snug and it has elastic. You actually have to squat down and pull the elastic band over the vent holes in the bottom rather than the "throw it on" covers for a weber grill. It is cheap, but much better than the garbage bag material cover I got for 9 bucks with my weber.

and if you dont have a home depot




Here is what it looks like with my smoker (weber lid)



Thanks for all the help building my first UDS

Please ignore the crappy Lowes gas smoker in the background that will never be used again and cost 150 bucks

Yep, I've been using that exact same cover for the last 2 years. It's starting to show some wear though...

I had a couple of these covers, and after a few years, the weather got to them, they became dry, brittle, and cracked. But for the price, I figure it wasn't bad for the 3 years or so of use I got out of them.

If that smoker is the Perfect Flame GS-2001, it is a great smoker. I use mine for smoking fish and sausages. You can turn it down to 160 degrees which is just right to keep the sausage casings from getting tough during the smoke. If you use wood chunks in the chip pan instead of chips and use aluminum foil with holes in it in place of the cover it puts out nice TBS for hours.
