That is a GREAT idea. I like the two parts (scraper and scoop). I just checked prices and they are around $18. And I bet they are carried at the big box pet stores.

Ya I picked it up at pet smart it was $20.00. Used it yesterday to clean the UDS. Lined a small plastic paint bucket with a plastic bag scooped away dumped in the bag tied up threw away. No fuss no mess. It was your hoe scooper that gave me the idea. Thanks

Trouble with 2 gauges in side of drum is the lower grate is very difficult to get past upper grate. On my large drum I have a electronic temp probe that is at lower grate used to run my redneck guru, one dial gauge in at lower grate and one in lid. I get about 20-25 degree difference in 2 dials if I leave it alone. If I open it for a little while they go haywire. Yuo really have to watch opening it as it temp spikes.

Thanks Norco. I am doing wings today on the upper grate nothing on the lower. Lower grate temp is 250 deg right now no idea on upper grate is so full no room for a oven temp gauge to give me some idea. If I get some shrinkage will put it in to get some idea. nothings perfect its all good

Well I just wanna say that after reading this entire thread I went out and purchased/scrounged up all the necessary stuff to build my own UDS. I spent 4 hours yesterday in the cold managing a towering inferno that I had built in the barrel using old wood pallets that I ripped with my circular saw, but hey, at least the fire kept me warm on the outside and the thoughts of soon having my own UDS kept me warm on the inside. I will be sure and post pics when I have it done, hopefully by Monday I will be smoking a brisket! Great thread and awesome forum!!!!

Tomorrow I cook for the inlaws. USC/Cal game at 5 & Hawaii/Fresno State at 8 on ESPN. My two favorite teams/schools......sc and UH that is....

Inlaws are from Hawaii.

Da Phoenix will be tested with a 4 pound butt, a 3 pound chicken(I butterflied), a fattie, and cheap ass funky denmark ribs I've been dying to rid my freezer of. Maybe some abt's if I get bored.
When the cook is done, I plan to add some more HBBQ Rancher to smoke some of my Peppers over nite. Depending on how drunk I get we'll see how that goes.
Hopefully I can post pics Sunday nite.

Using a 2 1/4" exhaust pipe (bent @ 90*) for the intake, running wide open, with a home made (redneck mod) coal basket, I got temps between 350* & 450* using Rancher lump today. Temps were measured using a dial - type meat thermo with a 6 inch stem. I just stuck it in the exhaust vent (3" pipe, about 16" to 18" tall) like you do to measure the dome temp of the WSM. The real temps may have been higher, but I won't know until I get a reading with a mounted thermo or install the grates & use the ET-73.
The next steps will be another burn to get the paint off of the inside (how many of these will I have to do?), installing the grates, cutting the ring off of the free 22 1/2" kettle that I scored today, building the ash-pan & the slide covers for the intake & exhaust tubes.
I keep doing a little at a time & keep thinking of more things to make / add to this "little project".
