Talking My (not-so) Ugly Drum Smoker.

Thanks to all of you who have put-up such great ideas, descriptions and photos for all of the Brethren’s Brother & Sister-hood.

I definitely want to thank Norcoredneck, N8man, Bigmista & of course my team members Butts-n-gutts & Mad Max who although 700 miles away have helped me build this thing.

Oh, and how could I forget jgh1204 for starting that ridiculously long (over 1500 replies and viewed over 137 thousand times) thread, darn thing took me 3 weeks on and off to read!

Here are some photos and a couple of videos, the drum was purchased new, unlined from www.newpig.com. There was no way I would have found the time to do a burn and grind, not with my job and 4 year old girl, so I had to cheat a little. Everything else, I purchased one or two at a time over the course of 3 weeks. Finally assembled and put to good use last night.

I can’t believe how well this thing keeps the heat! I slept last night with an open ear but never had to go outside to adjust anything until this morning, I opened all 3 vents and it allowed the Butt to get to 192°.

On to the Pics and yes, pron at the end. I will update with a Pulled Pork Picture later today.

























Thanks again!

Finished Product PRON!



YES!

I love it! Great job. I especially like the clamp on the band. I wish I'd thought of that, now I'm going to be using my kettle top.

The meat looks awesome...

Welcome to the drum corp!

Borrowed the Clamp Idea from N8man (I can't find the posting) he used a metal C-Clamp.

I thought the Quick Grip would be quicker on and off.

Great job on the UDS, Bro. That looks like a UDS with an options package. Especially, like the ez clamp on the cover.
Do you have a name for it, yet?

Nice job! I am off to the outside to see if my Weber lid will fit with my band like that.
