Finally found time to get started on my UDS.

Thanks to all the ideas here, I'm incorporating a number of them.

Still have a lot to do before it's finished.

Like the cart idea. I had some ribs on Sunday and it started to sprinkle for a minute. My first thought was I should have come up with a way to move it while cooking if need be. Luckily it didn't keep raining. Looks good so far. Keep us updated with progress pics.

You been readin N8te's threads....
Whats the double holes on the bottom?

I'm taking a lot of pictures as I go.

Steel caster wheels under the front. It's about 2 inches off the ground and moves around very easily. Old lawn mower wheels on the back. I don't throw anything away. :-D

4 double 3/4 air intakes will be covered by a spinning steel strip, totally adjustable. Probably overkill, but so what?

The barrel is upside down. The removable top, now bottom, will come off for easy clean out.

I have most everything located, drilled, installed, and then un-installed for paint, so right now it just a barrel with a bunch of holes in it.

nope, painted a few parts this evening. Friday is my day off.

Biggest task left is to burn the interior coating out.

I always liked "mag" wheels.
