Default My Mini UDS

Been reading the UDS thread, started at the beginning and got to page 113 and decided that I had to build one. I had an old 30 gal drum that I have had for years, so I burned it out with a weed burner and then a load of wood. Built two air intakes out of 1 1/2 in square tubing, exhaust out of some 3 in pipe and a firebox out of some 1/2 expanded. The shelf was build out of some other scrap and 1/2 expanded. All of this stuff I had in my scrap pile!

Here it is smoking away on maiden smoke with a fatty in it.

I have done some grilling in the past so this is the first time I have ever smoked anything! I have to say that the fatty was about the best eating I have done in quite a while!
