Dude, That is sweet. Reminds me of my steering wheel on my 63 chevy Implala when I was a teenager.

I wish I still had that car.

Got mine built just have not painted it yet. We fired it up with less than a bag of brickets and it cooked for over 12 hour at 250. Went to ask my kids for my Digi camera to be told it was busted . No picks for a couple weeks but we like to call the build style Texas Redneck.

Folks,

this is a great board. I can't believe it took me so long to find it. Anyway, thanks to all for the great ideas here in this thread. I have been looking for a good food grade drum for about a year now, since I saw the BDS. This week, I called a bakery supply dealer and he has 4 food grade drums that I can have, just need to pick them up. My wife is not keen on the idea, but it will give me a project. She thinks that 3 charcoal grills, one charcoal smoker and an electric smoker are more than enough, but we all know differently, don't we?

Once you get the UDS made you can eliminate some of those.

well, I have destroyed the electric smoker for parts. so it is no more.

I have done some preliminary shopping and got some supplies, I will start the process of building it tonight. the barrell is a closed top, so I will cut it off, and since I am cutting from the top, the lid will no longer be any good, but I think I found a flat lid for it. I also tried my webber lid and it fits perfect. I will take pictures tonight of what I am starting with and take pictures throughout the build. I am super excited. a bit of construction on the UDS, a beer, and then a bit of darts and a beer, and then a bit of construction on the UDS, A Beer.... and so on.

This has probably been asked before, but why are BDSís/UDSís and their various offspring so fuel efficient when compared to, say, an offset? The thing that put me off building an offset was the need to re-stoke the things regularly, whereas the UDS is well known (following Bigmistas method) for itís ability to be loaded with unlit coal, dump a chimney-load of lit on top, load the meat when temps are correct and then leave to cook, apart from checking the meat now and then. Must be a reason, does anyone know what it is?

Air control. For the same reason a Klose pit will be more efficient than a cheaply made offset. The better control of air you have the better control of temp. If you read all the bandera info they talk about making gaskets to seal up everything. If you read all the post about Spicewines and making fire baskets and adding Guru/Stokers they are controlling the burn by contolling the air. If you read about Stumps gravity feed smokers the same here the fuel is stacked in a tube and air control only lets the fire burn so much to control heat.
