I agree. I was mad enough to shake a baby when we gave New Orleans a pass to the Super Bowl but I still love my Vikings and we did better then 28 other teams.

I respect you for acknowledging you didn't win that game and the Vikings gave you a pass.

correction refs and the Vikings gave them the pass. Anyway this is going off topic. I jsut hope everyone else realizes that it is hard work to be a vikings fan. It should be respected that through all the heartache we still have a rabid and loyal fanbase. Saints fans above all else should realize what that means.

First, get a drum, second, go to Home Depot. they will have everything that you need except 22.5" Weber cooking grates, they will order them for you. Ontario Gas BBQ in Vaughan may have them in stock.

FYI, Home Depot had Weber replacement grates in stock in both of my local stores. It was still cheaper to order them from Amazon.

That guy at ehow just took pix from this thread (specifically Norcos build) and put them into his own writeup. Thief. Give credit where credit is due, and all of the info to build a UDS is here at your fingertips. One just needs to read.

edit: after looking a second time, he does namedrop Norco and the Brethren, but a person could miss it. It's hard to put that build into that simple of a description, but he did a better job than the other ones that are there, I guess. I still say the info is all here; you just have to look.

I'll bet they did, however, you don't live in a third world country where we don't enjoy that convenience.

He gives credit to Norco on one of the photos and has a link back to the UDS mega thread at the bottom of the page.
