Here is my build. Have only done 2 cooks on it so far.



Wording on the bottom so just incase she gets lost, people can return her.

Default New Mods on the FrankenTurboDeath Smoker!

Having patiently waited for that strange orange orb in the sky to once again return to the UK I thought I would get the UDS out from it's hiding place and do the mods I have been wanting to do.

Firstly is the Basket. I have fixed a cheap 52cm grill grate covered in foil to it to hopefully catch more ash and drippings! It is a pain to get in and out but hey no one is perfect!

Next I have cut a notch in the side (I know it could be straighter but hey it is an "Ugly" Drum Smoker) for the therm wires. You may notice that I cut "Intentionally deep" erm so I can fit more therm wires in, in future? However with a handily placed fridge magnet I can seal up the hole!

I'll start:

Stainless Drum, Big Green Egg draft door, WSM grate w/ 3/4" x #9 expanded metal charcoal basket. Weber performer lid w/ 2" Bar-B-Kettle bottom insert. Commissioned 2/11/2010.

Which size of draft door did you get to fit a 55 gallon drum?
