Thumbs up

used the original plan from Norco and completed it a couple weeks ago. Did some ribs and it turned out great.
Pictures are on the UDS thread (yeah the long one)

Cool Go for it.

I just got two drums today and plan on using this as a guide, I also have a stack of old disk blades that I was thinking about using at a heat shield or maybe weld a piece in the middle of a disk blade to make a water pan. I understand that the beauty of a UDS is that it doesn't need a heat shield, but what about the moisture? BTW, this thread is VERY useful.

My small contribution here......

I found drums for $20 at a hair products mfg place, they had light mineral oil in them. They were out of open end ones so I will start my first one with a closed end one.

I have really enjoyed your plans on the smoker you built. I am wondering is there a complete "how to " set with pictures for the completed project? For example where/how is the fuel placed? I know it is at the bottom but did you build a pan/box to hold it? I have only been smoking for a year or so and still have a lot to learn but I am learning that I need to build/buy something that has room for a larger quantity and maintains the temp better then the Brinkman Vertical that I have now.

Thank you very much for all of your work and being willing to share with us novices.

Default where do you find all the stuff

Great thread(over 3 years and people still posting) I have a question about where people find everything like the grates and lids. Are you able to score all these things free or do you have to buy all these? I see the cooking and charcoal grates are available at HD but could not see the lids. I guess it would not be a big deal to use the piece you cut off for a cover anyway.

Most people find a donor weber kettle on craigslist and use that for parts. If you can't find one (like me) your other options are to buy a cheap kettle grill from walmart or kmart, and use those for parts, or buy all the grates from HD, and you can buy a replacement weber lid directly from weber.
