Default My First Post

So I have been reading on here for quite a while and have decided it is time to finally post. I live in Wisconsin and have been an addict for about 3 years now. The last year has gotten really bad ever since I built a UDS. I began cooking BBQ after my parents moved to Kansas City and I went to visit and got my first taste of real Q. I was hooked on the first bite. A rack of ribs at Arthur Bryant's.

I returned home only to find no BBQ joints in my area so I began trying to make my own. Started with a COS that leaked air all over. Never really got that thing figured out so I started making it on my Weber 22.5 kettle. Major improvement then. I then saw a Weber Smokey Mountain and thought to myself I could build something like that.

That's where I discovered the UDS. That paired with a couple good thermometers and I was beyond hooked. I then spent much of my time researching techniques. I have been beyond pleased with my Q for the last year. I have cooked in all weather. I spent a lot of time this winter shoveling a path to the drum.

Lately I have been cooking for larger groups and have been needing more capacity so I began searching for a larger UDS. Enter insulated gravity feed cabinets. I really like the Stumps Stretch but don't have $5000 to drop seeing as we had our first baby 4 months ago. I happen to have some welding and fabrication skills and have a buddy with far superior skills and a lot of equipment in his garage. I also have a buddy with a machine shop who can get all the steel I want at his discounted cost. So 1 week ago I picked up all my steel and I'm thinking we might have it done in the next couple weeks. I will try to post some pron for everyone's enjoyment.

Seems like a great group of people on here and I can't wait to continue to learn from all of you. Thanks for all your help so far.

I didn't realize there were so many people from WI on here. That's good to see. Thanks. I'm trying to get a handle on posting pics. As I figure it out I will be posting more and will eventually do a build thread.

I believe I met Parruthead last year at RN3. You were the cook for the event if I'm not mistaken???

Thanks for all the kind words everyone.
