Thanks for that tip! I'd like to do a regular mini-UDS as well and I'll definitely hit up those shops.

Update on my Smokey Joe UDS.

For better ash management I got a new Smokey Joe Gold which comes with side vents.

A little update:

I decided to cut the bottom of the drum out as the original drilled out diffuser/bottom was too close to the coals and restricted heat flow as I was not able to reach temps above 300F, with the vents fully open. Coals were also not burning efficiently. I tried both, using the Smokey Joe Silver and the Gold....didn't matter.
I will run this meat hanger smoker body with no diffuser.

Here's a shot of the 16 gallon drum with a single meat hanger rod and a cut out drum bottom and Smokey Joe bottom:

Hi, I'm pretty sure they'll turn out fine as I have hung meat in the UDS sans diffuser before. In fact, with the 55 gal UDS the meat hangs closer to the coals due to the height of my coal basket. The Smokey Joe set up gives me slightly more distance between the meat and the live coals.
