Welcome. You'll find a wealth of knowledge and fun here! :) A UDS is a good start - cheap, too. It really depends on how much you want to cook at a time, what heat source (wood, charcoal, electric, gas), how much space you have, do you want to transport it easily...so many variables. Let us know what you decide!

Welcome!

You can easily start out with a charcoal grill, if it's big enough to hold whatever it is you want to smoke. I use a 22" Weber kettle, 'cause I'm too cheap to buy a separate smoker! Lots of use smoke on charcoal grills.

Welcome! You're in the right place. I will not disagree about the UDS, but I would like to know what Weber charcoal grill you have? As the fellow above said, you can smoke on a kettle.

UDS = Ugly Drum Smoker. You can find all the information about the UDS on this site and also how to build one.

If your like me and live where you can't have a drum sitting around your Weber kettle will provide you lots of great smoked food and hours of learning until you just have to unload some money or make a drum. Welcome and good luck........

Welcome Aboard The following is the thread to building a UDS
http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=23436
It is about 380 pages and it will give you lots of tips and designs, but basically a Ugly Drum Smoker is made from a barrel. There are vents at the bottom and on the lid with a charcoal basket and a cooking grill inside. Since you can fabricate it should be real easy. There are lots of folks here to help and answer your questions. Let us know how you're doin'. Most of all "have fun".
