Tell her you have spec'd out a new Gateway or Hunsaker drum and with accessories and shipping you can close the deal for $1500. Or, remind her a new paint job and cover for your UDS might be $250.

For the record, I won't dump the UDS. I'll shove it to the background for a while, perhaps, as this is an opportunity to get a pellet grill, which I've been wanting to do.


My big issue isn't that my wife thinks the UDS is ugly, but that I am skeptical of the high temp performance of a most pellet grills under $500. I really want good searing capability for my SV ribeyes.

I might get flamed for this but just cook over the fire pot with grill grates lol. Or just smoke on the pellet and sear over a charcoal chimney. Some even sear on a hot cast iron pan inside and get it preheated while the steak finishes coming up to temp. Searing/ food torches are also useful in this situation. So many options for searing

I think your wife is right. The next time you’re in Minnesota you can drop it off a my place.

Buy a Gateway or a Stainless Hunsaker. Tell her you were just doing what you were told.

Find a real nice, real expensive cooker and say that's what you need to replace it with.

Like a stainless steel Shirley. That’s the ticket.

*My* wife said I couldn't have any more rigs until I got rid of one of the ones I have. Then somebody got me a 28" Blackstone for Father's Day. Hmmmm..... Ugly my rigs may be, but they keep her fed. LOL

We can't have an extra grill/smoker but we can have closets and rafters full of Christmas decorations that get used one month a year. Makes perfect sense.

SO, your wife is concerned because your UDS is getting older and doesn't look as good as it once did? Well, isn't SHE getting older, and does SHE look as good as she once did?


Tell her that it you get a newer and better looking UDS, you will also be getting a newer and better looking wife. That should end the discussion. ( one way, or another! )
