  1. Just finished my UDS.  Have an ECB that I am upgrading from.  Not too much experience but anxious to learn.  Looking forward to learning a lot from the masters!
     
  2. Hey welcome to the site, congrats on the new build.  This is a good place to learn how to get the most out of it.  Good luck and good smokin'.

    Here she is, not so ugly...  I used some ideas from a couple of different google searches to come up with this design.  It has adjustable rack holders.  I found the barrel at a local honey producer.  Had to burn out the tan liner and just this Friday seasoned it with a 4 hour 300 degree burn with the interior sprayed with cooking spray.  It now has a nice chestnut color and is ready for food.  Next weekend will be the inaugural cook.  The family is looking forward to it.

     
  5. That looks awesome! Great job on the build curious to know how the cook went
     
  6. First cook went very well. I made some baby backs and some chicken thighs. Brined the thighs. Other then my rubs being a little off they were great. The UDS held temp like a champ and burned amazingly little fuel. Great first attempt. I think I am going for fatties the next attempt.
