I just wondered if this has been done before by anyone on here. Here is A picture of the pellet auger box thing that is for converting your beloved UDS into A pellet smoker. I have 3 very large wine barrels and originally thought of building standard UDS's out of them but thought maybe this idea might carry more merrit. From what I have heard from people that have built wine barrel smokers. They dry out and have to be filled with water often to swell the staves back up. This seemed like A lot of trouble to me. So I thought maybe having A dedicated cold smoker made like this would be pretty neat. Also might be good for summer sausage and such as you only need to top out at 170 and need lots of minor temperature control. Anybody have any thoughts? I borrowed this picture A while back. nice one huh?
