    That's a hard one to answer...everyone has their favorite.
    I have a vertical brinkman.....the two door style....and have had great luck with it.[​IMG]

    yup a hard 1-ECB's UDS's homeaid with block heck theres so many-if you went to $200 you have a better option.
  4. I have the Brinkmann Vertical as well.

    You will need to modify the charcoal pan for better burn. But that is case with almost every smoker on the market. Keyword...ALMOST.

    I use the wok pan pictured below when I use charcoal.

    You will want to line the bottom of the smoker with foil for easier cleanup as the ash falls through the holes.

    If you can fabricate a little (drill holes in metal, etc...) the UDS (a vertical drim smoker) is a nice upgrade from a small brinkman. I just finished mine, and while I didn't keep track, I'd bet it was under $100.

    Here is a link to mine, and there are others if you search for them.

    Hey Invader would it be possible to get the plans for your UDS? I have been looking for them but can't find them here. So many people here have built them and so many people at the competitions have them, everybody likes them. I thought I might just go ahead and build one foe me.
