Seems to me if we have a thread for gussied-up UDSs, we ought to have a thread for those that stay true to the name."Chrome don't gitya home!" Nothing against those who like 'em painted and purty. Some of them are really sharp and have had a lot of thought and hard work put into them.
I'm just lazy.
This monstrosity started because a coworker came in one day giddy about a "great looking grill" her neighbors had set out for the trash. She had dragged it home for me as a favor. I went to get it and it was pretty apparent why it was out in the trash. I didn't have the heart to tell her she should have let the trash men take it. I through it in my pickup and took it home to put it out for my trash pickup and I realized the frame itself was fairly solid... then the wheels started turning... ya know, that cooking chamber might be good for storage... I'm tired of rolling my drum around on it's edge... maybe the frame has some use... and I think I've got a couple lengths of angle iron around here... It worked, sorta. as a stand: too flimsy to actually move. Another gasser picked up off the curb supplied more pieces of frame for reinforcement, and WALLA! A really really really ugly UDS.
