That R2-BQ is waaay cool. My wife thinks I should make a UDS to look like the stanley cup. I think giant beer can.

It's a remarkable woman that can truly appreciate a gift of an UDS, although that one is not ugly.

Amen to the UDS appreciation.....my wife was skeptical at first. Now....she's asking every Thursday what I'm making on the weekend...and when it will be done....

Here's my UDS which I completed last week. Now that the bottom of the drum is nicely greased up the vent door operates smoothly by foot, no squatting down. Thanks for looking.

Finally finished my UDS. This is the second one I've built, but the first one was for Dad on Father's Day. I kept it very simple and very economical. No welds. Got an old used Weber kettle for $10 that donated its lid and grill grate (took some MAJOR cleaning). In the end I decided to go with the brushed steel look. I hand sanded the outside then put a high temp clear coat on it. In hind sight, I should have just payed to get it sand blasted or bought a belt sander .

I read the entire UDS thread (550+ pages) and did the first cook on mine this weekend. Did some fatties on Saturday and MOINK balls on Sunday. Everything turned out great!

Here's a shot of the smoker and charcoal basket ready for action.


Cooking away, fatties up to 152 degrees...


Fruits of second cook, MOINK!


I have already started on UDS #2 AND I have a stainless drum waiting in the wings....




I plan to retire next year. Looks like I've found a hobby that should keep me busy for a while. Building and using these things can be addictive!

I had a good buddy give me this as a gift! Did a hot burn in it yesterday just to play with temp adjustment and give it a final cleaning. Temps seemed easier to hold than anything else I've used. Gonna smoke up something this coming weekend! Pork loin roast or maybe chickens....maybe both.

It is.

I just did a little searching around here and found that my buddy's handle is MushCreek. I'm sure some of you recognize his handywork!

So, a great big public thank you to MushCreek! :)

The stainless steel drum makes that UDS worth at least $500 I estimate.
