Default UDS Build

Does anyone have any plans or designs for a UDS with two grates, water pan/diffuser plate using the original lid from the drum rather then a domed lid? I am considering just using the original lid on this first build, but would like two grates with enough distance on both for pork butts and/or briskets. Adice is welcome. Thank you! Pictures help!

There's no exact set of plans because they can be built for your needs. Some people do one rack, some people do two. Some use a water pan, others don't. There's a monster thread here that can give you ideas. I'm going through my first build too. If you have any specific questions let us know.

General rule is you want to have ~24 inches between your lower grate the the basket. That, to me, seems to be the most important spec.

put a weber 22.5" dome on it, there will be plenty of room for 2 racks.
