Just don't tell your friends about the UDS!
Especially don't tell them that you got a big supply of drum too!

It is hot as hell here today (94 degrees in the shade, 105 is my shop!, 95% humidity) and I have may ass out there building a drum for a friend of mine! He is on the way to help me finish. He wants to give it to has father in law for a father's day present so we are pushed to get it built. The things you do for true friends.

This is drum #11 I have built in the past year! I have all of my friends and family cooking on the drum! Brother, cousins, friends, etc.!

One thing for sure....I have a lot of "favors" that people owe me for the future!

OH YeaH! I have kept three for myself. They have been retrofitted with thermostated controlled fans so I just set and forget. (I do not built these types for friends...If they want to modify they are on their own!)

Your right thirdeye draft is draft regardless of where it comes from. I did happen to see the You Tube video, it only strengthened my thoughts about the air inlet tube. I am also using a smaller version of the Klose charcoal basket. It has 2 1/2'" legs on it to give it height, its 15" square X 6" deep design will usually provide 12 plus hours of cooking time at 220 degrees, when I close the vents and put out the fire I usually have some charcoal or lump left over, haven't let it burn fully to find out how long it would last but it could go easily go 14 maybe 16 hours.

Bman here are the photos of the covers over the air intake tube and exhaust stack, very simple to make.





As you can tell I experiment alot, here are some of the most recent ones I'm using. I have the inlet tube on all and a variety of exhaust lids, however I find that the one with the 3 inch exhaust tube seems to do best for some reason than the ones with the holes drilled in the lids. Also if your UDS sits uncovered on the patio you don't have to worry about covering it or plugging the holes to keep water out, just close the cover on the stacks.



You can never have too many smokers!

I've been shopping for a WSM trying to find the best price locally, looks like 209.00, but sounds like for 50 bucks I can make one of these baby's. Is a UDS ok for a newbie? Or is there a lot you need to know about smoking in general before trying to cook on one of these?

The UDS is great for a newbie! Set it and forget it!

I don't see how much easier you could get than a drum!!!!!!!!!!

You will be an expert in three cooks.

Well that is great, I think I may try to track down the material to make one of these too, heck for 30-50 bucks who could pass it up. Looks sweet, great thread.

H E L P ! ! !

I have read through all this drum smoker stuff and I keep hearing (reading that is) about using "food grade" barrels. Will any barrel work as long as it did not have DDT or Raid in it? Specifically if it had motor oil in it??? I can get all the barrels I want but they had motor oil in them and if they are OK to use what do I need to do to get the oil out? Cleaning solvent or just burn long and hot??
Thanks!!!
