Here it is! The FIRST product of my new UDS. I call it an Inside-Out Bacon Wrapped Cabbage Roll Fattie.

3 hours later at around 250.

First pork shoulder on new UDS
 
OK

This took longer than I thought. A LOT LONGER!

Not that this was a problem, it's just that I started at 11:00 am thinking I needed about 9 hours and shredded this begger at 3:00 am...the NEXT day.

My wife was NOT impressed.

Thank goodness for the fattie (3 hours to cook) or my hungry guests would have starved to death.

Here's the shoulder, rubbed and waiting for the smoker.

Here's the beast after 14 hours.

Pulled at 3:00 am then cooled and vacuum packed for pulled pork
sandwiches.

For me, this is all about learning, cooking, tasting, trying it again until I get it PERFECT! It's an elusive goal I know, but I'm up for the task.

I've got 2 slabs of side ribs on the smoker as I type...only 4 hours to go!

burning out a barrel for uds
 
I am in the middle of making my second UDS and made a video showing you how I burn mine out. I had a lot of issues getting the liner completely burned out of my first barrel until I figured out the 'rolling' technique. Hope this helps someone.

I tried to embed the video, but it didn't seem to work.

I decided I would quit being lazy and upload some pics of my UDS my friend, son and I built a few months ago.

Almost finished with the fabrication:

Yeah, I burned mine on my sidewalk....the gun shot I was talking about was the concrete exploding. Thanks for the video, Ill be doing a second burn to get the bottom area. Is it necessary to sand the inside after a burn. My looks like its down to metal for sure just with the black on it from the burn.

Electrical conduit, one end flattened, bent and hole drilled through.
Block of wood with hole drilled through at 45 degree angle.

Easy Hinge
 
Welding skills arent the greatest, but they hold. Used the weber kettle hinge, fliped it upside down, and tacked it on. Had to notch the bottom, now top mount to let the lid stand by itself.

The hinge would not line up with the drum or the lid, right side up.

What are you talking about ? That looks like a Brinkman factory weld.

So I have a mini drum that is closed top. Anyone know a way to easily and cleanly cut it open? I thought about using my jig saw but was wondering if anyone had a better idea.

Cutting
 
Use a cutting wheel on an angle grinder.

Skidder 06-15-2010 05:37 AM

Old Hippie thanks thats the shot I was looking for. Very good thinking.

A Chisel, A 5 lb Sledge, and a friend would be helpful since it is smaller than a 55.

Start on the very edge hit chisel with sledge while sledge is at an angle, till it cuts through, then move over and repeat.

2Bulldogs 06-15-2010 10:04 AM

I'm with Skidder. Black sharpie and an angle grinder....nice smooth cut.

otm7171 06-15-2010 10:20 AM

Old Hippie, thanks for the pic's and materials for the side table. Think I'll ad one to mine.
