Default Wanted a UDS, Wife says get Performer!

I've been looking at building a UDS for about a month now. The other day while walking in Ace Hardware my wife says why don't I just buy the Performer instead!! I've wanted a Performer for about 4 years now but bought a Chargriller Duo 2 yrs ago. Really like the charcoal side better than the gas. What to do!!!

Man, any time the wife gives you permission to spend money, don't ask any more questions! Get the performer and build the UDS later.

Find a performer on Craigslist AND build a UDS with the $$ you saved. Best of both worlds.

That's what I did. Actually, built the UDS first then got the performer off of craigslist. Use both equally. also, the UDS makes a damn fine grill. Just open up all the vents.

I also wanted to build a UDS, but the wife was concerned about the U part. She made me get a WSM instead. I was happy either way.

If my wife gives the ok to buy something I don't question it because it may not happen again.
