My UDS Build, first foray into smoking

Postby Kent_Lee » 10 May 2015, 09:26

So less than two weeks ago i hadnt even heard of a UDS at all, i was merely like many looking to buy a smoker and was on ebay etc and "nearly" bought one of the cheapo £100ish offset smokers, if im honest mainly as they look cool and funky.. But like many i always research purchases online and soon read 100s of comments about avoiding those cheapo offsets, then i read lots comments about building a UDS..
"build a what?" i thought..

Well fast forward just 10days and i have my drum, managed to get an unlined drum thanks to a tip from Forumite, and the build is on:

Day 1

Today after a good 4-5hr burn last night is time for the elbow grease to take hold...

charcoal basket looks ace indeed. I used a stainless steel washing machine drum and drilled extra holes in but I still wonder a. does it have enough holes to let sufficient air in and b. does the 'inward' ring at the top of the drum somehow cause some heatloss...
