I use a 16" pizza pan (crisper) with holes in it I picked up at Wally World. Use it on the third rack. Works well in keeping temps consistent. I've tried lager coal baskets, smaller coal baskets different lids, as well as grill heights and the pan works the best. Mine (UDS) looks like a rookie mistake compared to some I've seen. Still works though.

I picked up a holy pizza pan for mine too. I hope it works well. If I ever get time to use it.

Looks don't matter, it is the food that is cooked that matters. Thus the term Ugly Drum Smoker

If you do, you won't be sorry. The first time I cooked ribs and MOINKS on mine, I had a grin ear to ear. I have had a couple stumbles along the way with mine, but if someone offered me $$ for it today, I would walk away...... Depending on the $$ lol. I can build another cheap

Finally got around to putting together my first drum. Great learning opportunity. Could have done some things different but turned out great. A friend of mine got me a drum, closed top so it was a little bit tricky.





Christmas dinner going on. Stuffed turkey breast wrapped in bacon.



Turned out great!!

This is an amazing thread. I have been thinking of building an UDS for a while now. After reading through this thread I think I can successfully get this thing going. Thanks to everyone that has experimented and paved the way over the past few years. I'm sure I will still have questions along the way. Found food grade drums with rings and lids for 8 bucks might as well buy 3 or 4 and have some for future builds. Here goes. Wish me luck !!! LOL
