I am a happy smoker from Bakersfield Ca. I am new to the site but have been cooking for a few years now. My brother, father and I have started competitive cooking recently. My main cooker is a UDS that is controlled by a Guru. I am contemplating building a new upright cooker that will hold quite a bit more food then my UDS. I have seen some great ideas on this site and I may take a little from each one and come up with a " Super Smoker". I will keep you all posted and will send pics once I get started!
