Default Usd?

Do they really perform as advertised? I am wanting to upgrade from my Char-Griller offset (performance and ability to cook more at once). I know I can not afford to jump in to a Klose, Lang, Gator, etc right now and was tossing up between a UDS and a heavier duty Old Country BBQ pit from Academy Sports. What do you guys and gals think?? Pros / Cons?

UDS. I love mine. Cheap to build and if done right you can grill and sear.

Everyone should have one.

I started with one UDS (after retiring my Masterbuilt) and was so happy with the UDS I made 3 more. They're VERY fuel efficient, make excellent food (a lot of it), and are very easy to make. You'll really enjoy a UDS...

I love mine. Love my BWS Party, too, but that UDS is a mean cooker!

Everyone should start with a UDS. Smoking 101. Puts out a great product and teaches you a whole lot about low and slow. I highly recommend!

I did some pork chops on mine tonight. Best chops I've ever had. They were beautiful and was better than candy.

The guy I got this one from, his team uses many UDSs and they have won events with them.

Build a UDS, it is very satisfying to cook on something you built. The project is fun and the results are tasty!

UDS's are junk and we are all a bunch of hot wind bags telling tall tales of bbq superiority.
