$400 will just about buy you 2 BSKDs from Northern Tool! I love the idea, but to pay that much for something that is hard to get to the fire, limited cooking area, and will rust out fairly quick is asking a lot! Mista got it right the first time!

i have never seen a BDS.. I thought they were just drums with grates in them. Im just curious as to what the value added is that makes it worth spending $425 as opposed to building one yourself. (or doing like mista did).

Not arguing or making fun. I never saw one.. so gotta learn somewhere.

The $400 Jumbo BDS is a food grade very heavy guage steel and its much larger than the original. I didnt order one of those mine are the old style 55 gal drums scratch and dent discount type. Much the same as a WSM in what you can cook. Sure a guy could make one but I decided to just buy it.
Phil It just has a different taste with the direct heat. Would love ta Q with ya some time :)

Thom

I have a WSM

I have a 8# Costco Cryo flat itching to get cooked during Memorial Day.

Not trying to start a Memorial Day cook thread, but I have to ask.

Since the "direct but further away" method of "old style" smoking (from what I learned here) doesnt mind if the fat drips down directly on the coals (flavorizer, from what I'm reading) I need to ask.

I normally cook fat side down on brisket. Does the same hold true, I'm going to use WSM top shelf no water pan, in a direct method?, or is that too much fat hitting the coals/wood

If this question is in the wrong thread, I apologize and please split/delete it.

Well this may get moved but on the BDS you have to flip the Brisket
Fat side down then up then down again It will cook faster
Can you hold 225/235 with no water pan?
