Default Nice looking unit!

[QUOTE=UVaJester;1206758]Well I got the drum finished and coated the inside with crisco... Here's a final pic...



UVaJester,
This is a nice clean looking unit. What lid did you use? How are you drafting the bottom? I am sold on the u-bolt shelf supports and tel-tru thermometer.

I have a Large BGE and was thinking I wanted the draft door on a UDS. But i also wonder if there is any advantage performance-wise to the Riser/ball valve arrangement. I get that it is at a more convenient height but it is also a lot of hardware.

I am mostly through the thread.

I apologize, I didn't read the entire 743 pages of this thread and I'm sure this has been answered...but if someone could please throw me a bone, that would be awesome. I'm mentally planning a future UDS build and have been stuck on this part. I would be moving forward with the no-weld UDS but this is the best threaded nipple I could find for the intakes, however it's the dreaded Galvanized Steel. Is this what everyone else is using for intakes?

Was it in the electrical department? I can't find any non-galvanized ones on the HD website, everything seems to be galvanized.

Gc8 I believe you mean brass ball valve I dont think they make them in copper could be wrong tho. Brass is what you need . I would suggest using brass caps for your other nipples also as they wont rust and be hard to remove over time

Yup, I meant brass...sorry about that. Thanks for all the help, I'm in good hands with your advice after seeing your beautiful UDS (oxymoron?)!

I have found the black ones have an infinished thread and lead to a difficult time sealing to the drum. The ones from the electrical department seem better in that regard. All you have to do is let them soak 24-48 hours in white vinegar and the plating will come right off.

Default My crazy a$$ UDS

I'm finally getting around to posting my UDS build. I've already had four cooks on it. The pictures are pretty self explanatory so there won't be any captions. They are in approximately the correct order, enjoy!
