I'm a relative noob to smokers. However I've done four runs with a faulty thermometer and general understanding of what affects what. Quality was hit or miss. I got myself a good thermometer and wireless/remote thermometer...it was easy to get good quality.

I love my UDS. It was cheap and fun to build and customize. I looked at a lot of different versions on google and picked the design I liked. It's very fuel efficient and forgiving to little mistakes. I get a lot of satisfaction making good que on something that I made on the cheap. And you can go nuts with the paintjob with engine paint.

If they didn't work there wouldn't be a 770 page thread on how to build them.

I was skeptical at first. Went ahead and built one last week. Seasoned it on Thursday and learned the temps etc. Put a 11lb butt on it Friday nite and let it go for 16 1/2 hours. Temp never faltered once and was by far the best butt I had ever cooked. The efficiency of the UDS is an understatement. After a 16 1/2 hour cook I still had enough fuel to burn probably another 5 hours. I'm thinking brisket this weekend :)

When I finally broke down & got a UDS, I wondered why I had been so hard-headed & stuck on chasing temps in my Chargriller. MY CG has sat idle under a tarp since I got the UDS.

I recently built my first one and have cooked on it once so far and already started building another one last night. I'm happy, the wife ..... Anyhow. Yeah, love it! Can't go wrong.
