Hello fellow que-heads. I guess it's time I stop lurking and post something.

The epic UDS thread here has been very helpful through my build, and continues to be as I learn my newborn UDS. I figured I'd join up and see what else I could learn.
My UDS has been finished for about a week and I believe I've fired her up every day except one.

Here she is at her ugliest:

And as she sits now:

First smokes:

I look forward to being a part of this community. I'm not new to bbq, but I'm new to the freedom of doing it my way and look forward learning from others. Up until about a year ago, I managed the kitchen of one of those corporate chain bbq joints most true bbq enthusiasts hate.

It's kinda nice going from twin $20,000 Southern Pride rotisserie smokers to a backyard pit I built myself and putting out better quality food on the first run.

Well, enough ramblings for one late night.
See ya around the forum!

Noone in Indiana knows how to cook good BBQ!

Nice pit!

Did you actually get to handle those SPs personally or just manage those that did? I've seen a few of those up close. WAY cool.
