Consider your rack adjustment/shelving part idea stolen.

I can't take the credit for this guys, I saw it on here first. Actually I was not even planning using that. I had bought all the ss hardware and when my brother and i were working on it he was like hey I have this shelving stuff here and I was like heck ya I remember seing that being used let's do it.

I will post some better shots of the brackets later.

Here is a shot of the shelf bracket used 3 pieces. We only ran it down to the top of the fire basket, no need to really go much lower.

Here's a little more detail. I did this today. Thanks again for the idea.


I went to Lowe's and got some adjustable shelf hardware from the closet section.


I trimmed the shelf rails down to 18" and made 3 of them. I then tack welded them in the drum.


The stock shelf supports were to long so I trimmed them down as well to 2" from the rail slots.


Here is one rail and support complete.


All three in place with the rack at the top most level.


Decided to do the same thing down lower if I want to use a water bowl (ECB bowl pictured), or even a diffuser. Supports are 4.5" long with a little notch cut in the tip to keep the bowl from sliding around and falling of the supports.


All together ready for meat. Again, awesome idea and I think it will be the new standard for UDS builds. At least all my future builds will have it. I can't say thank you enough.

Chad

Sorry for the delay, been busy at work, the mini is 26 1/2" tall and whatever diameter, roughly 14", Weber smokey joe parts fit almost perfect. - grate, lid..I did a pastrami last Saturday on it, I really like it for smaller smokes.

Thanks, Budman! It sounds like that would be high enough to be used for low temp direct heat smoking.

I love the idea of the adjustable shelf rails. Very smart! My only concern is how much gunk gets on them after 20 or 30 smokes. I wonder how adjustable they'll be after that? If that turns out to be OK I will probably steal the idea for the UDS I'm currently building.
