Great char and crust on the beef. Don't forget to pour on some herb butter for added flavor and that all important crowd pleasing GIGANTIC flare up!
The cast iron grate is about 4" from the coals.


That's great ! Simplicity is king, and visually appealing. I'll be doing that

The ash pan, which is bolted to the basket, was made from a top to a 30 gallon drum

Thanks, as Homer Simpson said when buying nylons for Marge at Christmas:
"Practical and alluring!"

Good idea! That basket looks like it has never been in a drum though.

You are right. It isn't so shiny now though.

Great idea - I'm just starting on my UDS and will have to do that!

I know this is an old thread but Im am looking to make a UDG. Anyone have any plans for what to do inside? As well support for the grate or making an adjustable shelf ? What would be the best material to make the grate? Expanded metal or look for cast iron? I have a good friend that a welder by proffesion and has offered to help me. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Again I am doing a horizontal Griller not a smoker.

My other question is should I build this or get a CharGrill outlaw for $100?
