VERY interesting idea. I think you have nailed the price point perfectly, assuming the quality of materials is up to snuff.

I gotta say, BPS is my go to resource for my BBQ needs. I continue being impressed. This reminds me I need to stock up on a few things....


EDIT: ok.... price point looks a tad high to me when I see what is included. Doesn't change my original assertions": BPS is awesome.

I have thought of doing this exact thing...meaning selling a UDS kit online..... the price is not too high. I think Poppa's goal with the kits is to solve a problem (which is...for many;; I got the drum, okay now what) and also bring the customer back wanting other things. Good job Pop's

Do you have templates the person can just tape to the pit and drill?

If I may offer some feedback...

The idea of a drum kit appeals to me greatly. It saves time and effort in assembling a decent drum smoker. I have carefully looked at and considered all of the pieces being offered in the drum kit. And after thoroughly going through the huge UDS thread available here, I feel that the kit just isn't what I am looking for yet.

The first problem is with the Nest Assembly. It's great that it's adjustable and has a handy hook for it, but it doesn't have an ash-catching pan. That means that all of the ash will drop straight to the bottom of the drum, making clean up quite a bit of a hassle.

The second is with the sliding vents. I think the sliding vents look cool. But they do not allow me to use an automatic temperature controller to be used in conjunction with the drum smoker. And I am also a little concerned with installing them. Do I have to cut out an exact rectangle where the vents are supposed to be? I am not that handy, so people like me may have a hard time trying to make exact cuts to perfectly fit the vent coverings. If I accidentally cut too much, there will be an uncovered section leading to too much draft and not enough control.

And a well-designed grommet or two for temperature probe lines and such would be nice.

These are just some of my opinions. I think the kit is a great idea. If the kit, in the future, ever resolves these issues, I will be first in line to purchase one.

I have used one of these kits. The hardware appears to all be stainless . The vents can be made with the supplied bit . A series of 3/4 holes or if you want a square cut out you would need a jigsaw or something like it .The tape on templates make locating and drilling the holes easy.

What about the charcoal basket? How does it stand up to use?
