Default REQUEST: 85/96 Gallon UDS Cook Pics Please.......

Hello everyone. I was curious if anyone who has/had an 85 or 96 Gallon UDS could post some pics of you cooking on the cooker.

I am interested in seeing the capacity of the cooking grates.

I am curious, because I am thinking about building me a bigger UDS for comps. I am wanting a bigger cooker so I can cook all of my large meats on one cooker and only have to babysit one cooker through the night. I originally had my mind set on a 110 Gallon, but am contemplating a 96 Gallon Drum as well.

If anybody can help me out that would be great and I really appreciate it.

All of my pics are on my new 85 gallon UDS.

I don't have that many pics of food ON the grates...but I fit a 10lb bag of leg quarters and a 1 pound fatty on one rack with ease.

10lb loin rib roast


My first cook, 4 leg quarters (and these things are big mumbo jumbo leg quarters too)

I have 3 racks and only used 3 once. The big cooks i have done i don't have pics as I am a 1 man show and buisier than 1 legged man at an a$$ kicking contest. Good visual is the 2 1/2 pans on rack.

Does the 85/96 gal. drum have a larger diameter? If so, where do you find the grates to fit it?

Try this link for great grates for your XL-UDS.

Thanks to BigMista on another thread.

The 85 gallon is 26" diameter. I ordered my grates (Rome campfire grates, 24.5") online for $17 each.

Thanks everybody. Those were exactly what I was looking for. Gives me a really good idea of capacity. I am thinking about taking the plunge and ordering a new 96 gallon.

I just can't decide between the 96 and the 110. I mean there is a pretty large price difference between the two, but it ain't as though either one of them would be cheap! :) So maybe I ought to go for broke!! I'm not really sure.

What do you guys think, 96 or 110?

Get the 110. Better to have it than wish you did. Good luck.
