Default Custom Drum Smoker on CL

Looks like somebody has been reading up on making a UDS. Wounder if this is anybody here, I would be curious to know how many they sell. Price seems a little high to me. Looks like they did a nice job though.

I'm quite a fan of the bottle opener feature. That sells it for me.

You would think for the premium price of the smoker, they would learn how to properly orientate the photo's so you wouldn't have to jack your neck all up trying to get a better look.....

Looks like the bottem rack is pretty close to the fire basket. Flare ups?

These are not cheaply made grills, they require a good bit of steel fabrication and welding....
Really? Where exactly is that? I guess he could be doing something different in his "production" models but the only place I see a need for welding would be the intakes and I guess you could call cutting some holes "fabrication".

Also, its hard to tell but how do you control airflow? It looks like they are pipe nipples but I do not see a ball valve or caps.

Edit: Not trying to be a hater, just calling it like I see it. I am all for someone gettting paid for their time and effort. To me, $200 is a fair asking price for a standard UDS (really should include a dome lid IMHO for that price too).

WHY would you buy a UDS when you can get the 22.5" WSM for less than that?!?

Isnt the whole point of the UDS is to be on the CHEAP...?

I also wondered about the "welding and fabrication" because I only see a few nipples that most people just drill and screw in...

I guess that's business, Market your product and upsell its value even though he has less than 1/4 of the asking price in each build :)

They look nice but that price blows my mind
