Looks good. This is just my opinion, but two stacks is a bit much, one 2"er is all you really need. You may find you're losing a lotta smoke and heat with two, but see how it does first, then if not you can always delete one. They're great cookers in general though, you'll love it.

Yeah I figured running them both wide open would be a little much, I have been crafting a way to block the holes off halfway on the underside of the lid (which would leave me with one complete 2" circle) I haven't figured out quite how I am going to accomplish this yet. Ascetically I like the look of twin stacks vs one!

Here is a terrible cell phone pic of my virgin drum. More to come soon! Should be picking up sheet of expanded metal tomorrow to get the basket fabricated.
Is that a ClicGear 3.0 I see in the background ?? ;)

LOL.... I'm not sure how you could see that with as blurry as the picture is, but yes, yes it is. I golf as well, but that cart belongs to my roommate.

***UDS update, 90% assembled, got it all put back together last night, just need to drill the hole for my Spicewine temp gauge after work and install that and she should be good to go! I sanded the inside down and gave her a good coat of grape seed oil last night.

Also planning on painting the Chicago Bears 'C' in the middle of the blue section tonight. Should be ready for my break-in smoke on Saturday!
(can you eat the meat from the first smoke or is it best to just toss the first one?)

Looks awesome, I just built one this past weekend and the name ugly drum smoker definitely fit mine! Although it has produced some pretty good ribs, butt and chicken so far
