Default Birth of an 85 gallon UDS

Basically the same as a 55 build, but bigger!
Custom built 18" dia charcoal basket 3" off the floor.


By imn88fan

Lid didn't have a bung and i HATE all those holes so i drilled a 2" hole and installed my patented PVC threaded adapter and a 8" piece pf 2" pipe for the exhaust!


By imn88fan

3 intakes, 1 with a 3/4" ball valve and the other 2 with simple magnets.


By imn88fan

Customized a lid holder from a 6" piece of flat bar.


By imn88fan

Added a hook for the grate...


By imn88fan

Stuck in a 12" turkey thermo to read at center right under grate.
Locked in at 250*


By imn88fan

So far, acts no differently than the 55.
Was up to temp in 10 minutes with RO charcoal.
Using Mesquite to season the drum.

Nice! So did you have to build a custom grate to fit it?

No, found an old BBQ PRO 26" kettle in the garbage years ago, been saving it just for this project!
Grate fits perfect and the kettle lid will be retrofitted shortly!

Like the magnets! I use them for all three of my holes. Watch out on a hot wide open cook if you just stick them a little higher on the drum. They might melt to the side. Don't ask how i know that.
