Default Adding my UDS to the club

Just wanted to say thanks to all you geniuses for teaching me the ways of the UDS. ITS UGLY AND AMAZING! Built mine early spring, not sure if its stopped cooking since. Everyone is amazed at how awesome, tender and juicy the food turns out after their initial reaction to "What is that a burn barrel?" and then "You're cooking in that thing?" So here's a few pics.

I threw a Pork roast on...
covered in Plowoys Yardbird, injected with Apple Cider vinegar, Worstechire, brown sugar, salt and coca cola. Forgot the pics when finished cooking but OMG AMAZING!!!!!! sorry for the blurry pics, I worked all night and had a few beers at 7 am lol.....

I'd scarf on anything that came out of that drum. Nice job!

Wait till it's worked in a bit. It just gets better.

Now that is truly an ugly drum smoker, and I mean that in a good way.

Dont have a shot of it right now but i bought a cheap grill at walmart. I used the hinges off that. I took the hinges off the base and attached to grill top. marked the holes and drilled then attached base hinges to UDS. if that makes sense. There are two pins that connect the two with cotter pins on the ends.

I will try and get some pics for you guys.

I use two grill grates to double my pleasure. I put the pork butt on the the lower grate and just didnt put the top grate on. THe longer bolts are so its just easier to put the grate back on when im cooking because if they were all short ones they have to line up perfectly or grate could fall thru. At least thats what i have found.

AND THANKS ALL!!!!

Yup pretty much the same set up I use only my domed lids are from previous models when I can find them. The hindged flip lids are the only way to go. Nice work my friend.
