I think I got the build figured out. The real issues come when I start to cook, I got a lot to learn there!!!

Had a little change in plans for the lid.

I really wanted to use a weber grill lid and could not find one on CL.

I looked back and had a few Home Depot gift cards from xmas. Well there was more than enough on the gift cards to pick up the weber grill. So I will use the lid, grate and handles for parts on the euds.



The lid did not fit, was close, so had to use a lil persuasion on the barrel lip with a pair of vise grip pliers. After about 20 mins of crimping the barrel lip, the lid fits nicely.

My kids spend their summers working at a boy scout camp. Last summer my oldest son brought a uds down with him to camp. He started cooking pulled pork on their days off. Then a big storm came through and knocked out power to the camp. Power was out for a week. Camp was closes, but the staff stayed there to clean up.

Son ended up cooking for 70+ people a day on his uds.

I had one of those back in the late '60s. It was called an Electric Redi-smok and it was manufactured by Bob Rod Enterprises. A friend of my dad's gave it to me because it was too much trouble to clean up after cooking, but the thing turned out some really good food with absolutely no attention. We used to take it to our deer lease and throw all kinds of stuff in it before daylight on the porch. About 12 hours or so later, open the thing up and whatever you had in there was falling apart tender with a nice smoke ring. Unfortunately, my mom insisted we scrub the inside of the thing clean after every use (seasoning? what's that all about?) and that was such a pain that it only got used a couple of times a year. Finally rusted out after 15 years on a shelf in the garage and went to the scrap yard.

I did a test run on the Smoke Daddy and did it smoke!

I might have to slow the air flow down as it seems like maybe a lil too much. But I'm sure I'll get it right after a couple of cooks.

Did the barrel burn out. Needed to get rid of the extra wood laying around!





Used the pressure washer to remove all the burnt paint and grime from the inside and outside.



Using the drill and wire wheel to get the junk off.

Yea Mark, blew me away at the output. I used pellets, may have to use wood chips so as to cut down on the smoke.

I'm not a good bbq cook (yet) so I don't know if one can have too much smoke and ruin the cook. But I'll learn soon enough.

I have a Smoke Daddy Magnum and use pellets.
I get it well smoking then after about a half hour I turn the pump off.
it cruises along for hours after that, Just need to tap it every so often to settle the fuel.
Hope this is of help

I didn't think of that, was thinking about using a valve to slow the air output from the air pump. But once it's smoking, just let the normal air flow take care of it.

Thanks Aussie!

Ok, so this is where the fun part starts ... the electrical components.

So in addition to the 220v heating element ...



This is the electrical box that will house the wiring terminal strip, the SSR and it's heat-sink and power cord.









The power cord.





The wall outlet that the cord will plug into.



Here is the SSR (Solid State Relay) mounted on it's heat-sink.











K type Thermocouple (4 inch probe) for PID temperature controller.



The PID ...
Manufacturer: Auber Instruments
Model Num: SYL-2352







Aluminum enclosure for the PID. Will mount this on the side of the barrel.





High heat wire (that you will find in ovens and ranges) to wire from the SSR to the heating element.

Here are a couple of wiring diagrams.

The first diagram is from the manufacture of the PID showing a 120v diagram and a 240v diagram.

The second diagram is mine, I changed things up a little. Even though the PID can run off 240v, I did not want that going to to it. So I'll run 120v to the PID and I want a wall receptacle so i can plug a fan, radio, light or anything else I may want to that would only need 120v.
