Well finally got a lid for the 30. I ended up getting it directly from Weber. Hopefully I'll be able to start on it in the next week or so. Got a ton of different things going on and one thing I don't have is a lot of time. I am also currently working on Part 3 of the video series. It will cover how I did the Weber lid. Just figured I will put up an update.

 

I will say that I am loving the 55. It has been great. Most recent smoke was 2 briskets I did over Memorial Day weekend. We were camping so I didn't take a lot of pics but here is what I took.

 

 

 

First briskets, I got much to learn, but they were gone and they were delicious. One of them dried out a bit, but the other one was awesome. I don't know how many conversations I had about this "big grey drum thing" that was sitting on my campsite. I met so many people that weekend and it was due to the UDS. I think I might have to build a couple for some people I don't even know...lol.

 

Anyways, keep an eye out for 30G updates and the videos. I must apologize for the ads on the videos, but trying to bring in some extra income.

 I am an AT (Avionics Tech). I am currently stationed at NAS Pax River. 19 years and going. Looking like I'll hit 22 and retire unless they decide to give me a star before then...lol.

It looks like it should be aboard ship. I think you should paint "USN" and some random serial numbers on the side!! Maybe paint it white and weld a fake gatling barrel out the side and it could be an imitation CWIS!

Part 3 of the UDS build video is uploaded...finally...lol. Here it is.

 

 

On a side note, I used the UDS this past weekend for an R/C helicopter fun-fly and smoked a shoulder for 16 hours. It was an 11lb'r and with 20 registered pilots and their guests, there was none left and got nothing but compliments. Not sure how many times I had to explain how the UDS worked...lol.
