Default Completed UDS Build

Here is the burn out...




The charcoal baskets made by a friend for a rack of ribs



Just bolted together before the seasoning burn and paint it held a constant temp for about 10 hours before i closed it up for the day.




The final assembly and painting. Looking to make a metal cart something like what they are sitting on.



I have a little touch up work to do, but on Wednesday I have a 13 lb packer brisket that is going in as the first smoke.

I hope to learn the UDS so I can have a good showing at the Madison Ribberfest.

Wow those are some killer baskets for a nice looking pair of drums.

I smoked an eight lb packer for my first smoke on the UDS just this last Sunday and the UDS held temp great. One thing I noticed was that my dial gage on front like yours was about 20 degrees cooler than my grate temp was. I don't know if this is consistant on all drums but is something to watch. Good luck with that packer.

It's pretty standard that the edge of the drum will be cooler than the center by 20* to 50* depending on the drum. A heat shield will help even out the temps. I use a "grilling wok" from Menards on top of the charcoal basket - make sure to get the one with the holes in it . My drum has the Weber lid & my side / dome temps run about 10* different.

Very nice. I would keep an eye on the basket on the left. Ash might buid up on bottom and choke off air flow. Might take a little more shaking.
