    I am curious on what defines a UDS.  Is it your typical drum standing there as a smoker, or is it any smoker built from a drum or drums.  I see some drum smokers with another drum as a firebox and just wonder if those are actually SFB smokers or are they still UDS.

    I'm not 100% on this, but a UDS is an upright drum smoker with no separate firebox.

    I suppose any smoker built out of a drum could be called a UDS (Ugly Drum Smoker) but I always consider a UDS as a single drum without a side fire box. But heck if its a smoker made from a drum that's ugly by definition its a UDS I guess. haha

    I am asking because of the custom build list I made.  I am going to split it up into categories and wasn't sure if a drum with a sfb is still a uds.  Also the double drum ones with one drum mounted on top of the other.
