Many of these are WAY too nice to cook on. Someone should host a UDS only BBQ event, with a cooker competition as well.

I started my UDS build the end of September. Barrel cookers have been around in this county for as long as I can remember. But to compare my old chicken barrel to the UDS, is like comparing a fireplace to an airtight stove.

I made one change to my UDS, and that was to place my vent holes in the rim of the barrel, so I can still hang my chicken or tri tips when cooking. I wound up drilling a couple of extra vent holes, which I cover with flexible magnetic strips when not needed. So far, everything works great. It will run low, 250-275, and run hot 400-450. Could not be happier.

Old School barrel. Cooked a lot of meat in it over the last decade or so.



Even used a weber kettle lid on it when I did turkeys



winter coat



UDS Deluxe



Holes for vent/3/8" rebar rods

My UDS *sucks* but it works just fine. I have a 4 3/4" nipples about 3 inches off the bottom, 3 with caps, and one with the ball valve.

The basket is embrarrasing. I won't post pics of that. It's a inch Weber grate with 12x24 sections of expended sheet metal walls held on with stainless steel zip ties! It is mounted with bolts to an 18 inch pizza pan for ash, which works well. It looks like a bag of hammers, but gets it done.

Yes, it needs handles and whatnot... and paint. But that would be less ugly.

I like the idea of bringing the intake valves up toward the top by using vertical pipes. Should I steer away from galvanized pipes or is the temp here too low to be a concern?

These are all very impressive, and inspiring! I started my build yesterday with drilling and doing the burn in. I want to get the sanding done today. I should be able to get it done between football games.

Thanks for the pictures and all of the ideas!
