Chief, also let us know how the red RTV holds up as a gasket adhesive. I'm running ideas on how to affix some fire rope around the smoking chamber door of my Bandera.

Got my wheels added today. Took the Weber wheels from the donor 22.5". Here's a couple of pics.





Just need to add a front leg to make it level, but it's time for an adult beverage up at the adult beverage preparation station.

In the end it will be okay.

Haha, I didn't even think of that. Actually it's the VHT Fireproof Primer. I haven't decide on a final paint scheme just yet. But I will use that until I do.

I like that shelf bracket idea. Was planning on putting on some removable shelfs on the outside, but might have to get some for the racks also. Good looking build.

Got the final preps done so I could smoke a turkey today.


The front leg to level it out. This might get changed later but it will work for now.


Took some of the same angle iron I used for the wheels and legs and welded a small piece to the front of the drum to hang my ET-73 on it.


Here it is heating up to throw the turkey on. We're not doing anything special with the turkey. Just a simple rub and we didn't brine it since it is a self basting "enhanced" turkey we bought a while ago.



I'll post pics of the final bird when she's complete.

Easter Turkey = Gone. It was the quietest meal we have had in a long time. Everybody was to busy stuffing their faces instead of talking.


Here she is complete after about 30 minutes of resting.


First time smoking a turkey. Didn't have much of a smoke ring but she was super moist and tasted amazing.

Love this UDS. It held temps really well. I used lump along with soaked apple wood chips and some Jack Daniels barrel chips mixed in the lump. I couldn't find apple chunks so had to get what I could find. Might be why I didn't get a good smoke ring. Anyway, the UDS, with all vents opened maintained 270-285°F. Didn't even touch it. Turkey smoked for just over 4 hours. Not sure how big it was as we didn't look at the label. I want to say maybe 10-12lbs.

Now it's time for a nap...lol
