You can cut the brackets back and add a grate so they aren't in the way.

In my spare time (what little I got) I am in the process of editing the videos. Stay tuned and they will come.

Haha. Actually I have been waiting for this crazy arse weather to warm up and to stop raining at the same time of having time. And, Yes, I am an airdale, AT for that matter. I might have to paint it khaki with brown wheels and front leg.

Actually, it hasn't been a problem on the smokes that I have done. I just pull them out, remove, fill, and replace charcoal basket, and then replace the supports while the chimney is firing up.

No mustache but I am looking at installing a bottle opener and beer holder. Might have to look at designing a coffee cup holder too for them early morning starts.

I am a retired ENCM, and mine is painted metallic red, with a metallic copper lid. Tired of gray and even though I wore Khakis for over 16 years, not willing to paint the UDS Khaki. But I still have my mustache.

Well finally got a lid for the 30. I ended up getting it directly from Weber. Hopefully I'll be able to start on it in the next week or so. Got a ton of different things going on and one thing I don't have is a lot of time. I am also currently working on Part 3 of the video series. It will cover how I did the Weber lid. Just figured I will put up an update.

I will say that I am loving the 55. It has been great. Most recent smoke was 2 briskets I did over Memorial Day weekend. We were camping so I didn't take a lot of pics but here is what I took.





First briskets, I got much to learn, but they were gone and they were delicious. One of them dried out a bit, but the other one was awesome. I don't know how many conversations I had about this "big grey drum thing" that was sitting on my campsite. I met so many people that weekend and it was due to the UDS. I think I might have to build a couple for some people I don't even know...lol.

Anyways, keep an eye out for 30G updates and the videos. I must apologize for the ads on the videos, but trying to bring in some extra income.

Part 3 of the UDS build video is uploaded...finally...lol. Here it is.


On a side note, I used the UDS this past weekend for an R/C helicopter fun-fly and smoked a shoulder for 16 hours. It was an 11lb'r and with 20 registered pilots and their guests, there was none left and got nothing but compliments. Not sure how many times I had to explain how the UDS worked...lol.
