Default First UDS build in SoCal---

Well I built my first UDS today. GTR gave me the low down on APEX drum and container, I went over and got a barrel with no paint and no liner with a removable top. I went to a mixture of Wal-mart, Lowe's and Home depot gathering all the supplies and the picture tells the tale... I really like the UDS....

I forgot to say thanks to all of you Socal bretheren for your great suggesstions on places to get stuff out here. The drum only cost me $35 and I went to smart and final and bought all of my meat and spices. All I have to say is; why arent you all shopping at smart and final? I bought (2) 8lbs butt for $21.00 a turkey for 1.49 a lb and i saw just about the best produce i have ever seen....that store kills any wal-mart produce and meat i have ever seen...

So i say again Thank you guys....
