So I built my UDS. I still have some things to finish on it but it's a smoker now. Got 2 barrels from the scrap yard for $4 each. Picked up a few nuts and bolts, some expanded metal, and some new grates from Home Depot. I had a Sears kettle style grill with a hinged lid that I used the lid off of.
Curing...... the lid doesn't fit
So I cut a strip out of the other barrel and riveted it in on the existing one. Hole is great to stick the thermometer probes through.
Can I help daddy?
