My name is Nate Francis and from Owensboro, Kentucky. I would label myself as a novice/beginner smoker but have a willingness to learn this special craft. Upon my research and desire to build something out of boredom and to keep myself entertained, I stumbled across something that is relatively cheap as well as fun to build, a UDS (ugly drum smoker). Like I said, I read pretty much every post regarding the fabrication of a UDS, read the do's and don'ts of a UDS, and now have begun my very own.
Thanks to this site I have learned a lot from many will continue to grow into what I call now my new favorite hobby
