  1. I decided to build a UDS after reading all of the praise about these beasts.  Here are some pictures during my build.  

    Here is the beginning of my build.  I used that shoe string to measure the exact diameter, and to mark where i wanted my two inlet valves, and main valve to be.  I then used those markings to keep in line my markings for the grate holes.  i have a two grate system, but have three different levels to choose from.  One three inches from the top then two more levels six inches down at each level.  

    Here i installed everything just to see if i liked where everything was lining up.  Yes that is the red liner of death....

    I burnt the thing out three times, and I am grinding it here.  My neighbors probably thought I was an idiot when i started grinding the inside.  Word of advice, AVOID THE RED LINER AT ALL COSTS.  It sucks a lot....

    Here I am preparing for paint.  I used a high heat primer, and high heat black and grey paints...

    Here she is all together, and being seasoned.  Cant wait to start cooking...

    One more for the road..

  5. Yes sir.  I did a lot of research on youtube and his design looked very well thought out.  I did add some things like the three hooks, and an extra level for racks, but yes I did follow his lead.
