hey! im names ross and im from san jose ca. im 25 and currently finishing up my community college education. im new to smoking.... in fact i have yet to smoke any meats yet. I just started building a UDS and im excited to see how everything turns out. I have the drum but i need to have it sand blasted. i have been collecting the parts over the past few weeks and more importantly the information to make sure this is a successful first build. Im a little concerned about having the drum sand blasted but after that im sure everything will work out. I also have my charcoal basket pretty much done, i have a friend who will weld it for me.
any links or tips would go along way! i have spent so many hours researching how to build a UDS i cant wait to start learning about all the delicious meats and all the different ways to prepare them.
