I'm a new member here but I have been reading alot about uds's. Wana thank everyone for the great info and ideas, and would like to share how i make my charcoal baskets. Instead of using expanded steel i go to the local salvage yard and pick up a 15 inch front wheel drive rim. The bolt face is offset on a front wheel drive rim compared to a rear wheel drive rim. They work great, about 8 inches deep and 14 inches inside dia. Just put a weber smokey joe charcoal grate in the bottom and weld or bolt some 3 inch bolts to the bottom and of course wash and clean anything off of it, then fill it with charcoal and get it really hot when u burn your barrell out and its ready. It is a little heavy but its 10 bucks for the rim and 10 bucks for the grate, and no welding or cutting.

Its UGLY but it appears that it will work. Makes it even more UGLY...

LOVE IT!

Yea, very ugly and heavy. We have cooked 6 butts at a time for over ten hours at 225 and never had to even open the lid! The rim will hold almost a half bag of charcoal and run forever. My dog thinks the drip pan under the smoker is the center of the universe!

I don't know, looks to me you have limited air flow and it looks really heavy! Let us know if it works? :confused:

chaddie 09-27-2010 08:33 PM

Sorry for my post.:oops: I wasn't paying attention.
