I have converted from a small brinkman to a home made UDS. I just finished it over the weekend by burning it in for 2 days. I broke it in with a pork butt that I injected with garlic and lime juice and coated with canola oil and the special seasonings everyone has and stuck it in the fridge for 24 hrs. I have a water pan that I just filled with water. I used a combo of mesquite and hickory chunks soaked in water. This was a 5 hour smoke at a consistent 200 degrees. Hope ya like it, I did. Next project Big Bird in a couple of weeks.
