Thanks for the thoughts, I have been looking into diffusers, I thought I was going to have to make my own but I’ve found several available.

Hello everyone, here's my first post.

I came across this forum researching smokers. Like many, I started smoking on a Weber Kettle. I'll be moving from Miami, Fl to Central, Fl in a month and decided I should break in my new house in with a proper smoker. After tons of research, I decided on a UDS because of cost and the fun of building something fun with my pops.

So far, all I've got is a burned and primed drum, but once the parts come in, it should all come together nicely.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread over the years. For anyone looking to build a UDS or any smoker, this thread is as important as any of the tools necessary to get the job done.

Here's a few pics with updates to follow.

Here's the final product. I'm extremely pleased with this build. It was never my intention to actually build my own smoker, but I'm glad I took on the project. My pops and I haven't spent time together like this in a while, and that alone was worth it all.
