Just finished my UDS.  Have an ECB that I am upgrading from.  Not too much experience but anxious to learn.  Looking forward to learning a lot from the masters!

Hey welcome to the site, congrats on the new build.  This is a good place to learn how to get the most out of it.  Good luck and good smokin'.

SmokinAl. 

Here she is, not so ugly...  I used some ideas from a couple of different google searches to come up with this design.  It has adjustable rack holders.  I found the barrel at a local honey producer.  Had to burn out the tan liner and just this Friday seasoned it with a 4 hour 300 degree burn with the interior sprayed with cooking spray.  It now has a nice chestnut color and is ready for food.  Next weekend will be the inaugural cook.  The family is looking forward to it.

First cook went very well. I made some baby backs and some chicken thighs. Brined the thighs. Other then my rubs being a little off they were great. The UDS held temp like a champ and burned amazingly little fuel. Great first attempt. I think I am going for fatties the next attempt.
