I purchased a replacement charcoal pan from academy and use it as a drip pan...I dont like the grease on charcoal flavor.

With this configuration, you could probably have 3 racks. How sexy would that be?

Just curious if anyone has tried it. I want to build a regular UDS, and then one of these like a WSM to see if it would work. I have sized the large charcoal pans at Ace Hardware and think they are a good match for the 22.5" drums. What say you guys? You're the UDS experts and have seen it all really.

I really will build these someday. Those who know me know that sometimes it takes a while for me to find the time to finally do some of the things on my wish list. So I'm serious about this, but don't expect me posting pics of my build this weekend ya know!
I built 2 UDS's based on the WSM...here is the sketch I used for dimensions. I used a flower pot bottom on the third shelf for a heat sink / drip pan. It worked great!

Build it right, build it once.
Good advise!

Leaks in the intakes or the lid will cause terrible temp control issues!

Anyone ever installed a rotisserie on a UDS ? I saw a brand new one in the box the other day at goodwill for $5 .
Thought if it is there tomorrow I might offer them $3.50 and see what they say.

OK, here are a few pics of mine.

After the first burn. Did second burn and a lot of time with the wire wheel.

Now here's the basket. bought a piece of expanded steel 12"x24" and cut it in half then tried to weld them together in a circle. The welds stuck but it sure is ugly. Used wire to tie the ring to the basket.

The morning after the first cook. Will probably paint it some time in the future. Isn't she ugly? Love at first sight.

First cook.

I think those extra two holes in the lid are going to give you problems.

I was having a problem getting up to a high temp so I added them. I have three 1/2" nipples and am running them wide open. I can hold steady at 220° which is fine for most of what I want but was looking to be able to get a higher temp for other things. Might need to add another inlet?

Why do you think the extra holes in the lid will be a problem?

you may want to add more intake. I started with three 1/2" and found it hard to keep the temps up.

If your temps wont rise then you are going to need more intake. I use two 3/4" intakes and just the 2" exhaust. I run with one wide open and adjust with the other.

Wide open..


Adjust temp..



Exhaust..

Your temp problems stem from too much exhaust and not enough intake.
