Pork butt on new UDS

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have converted from a small brinkman to a home made UDS. I just finished it over the weekend by burning it in for 2 days. I broke it in with a pork butt that I injected with garlic and lime juice and coated with canola oil and the special seasonings everyone has and stuck it in the fridge for 24 hrs. I have a water pan that I just filled with water. I used a combo of mesquite and hickory chunks soaked in water. This was a 5 hour smoke at a consistent 200 degrees. Hope ya like it, I did. Next project Big Bird in a couple of weeks.

Man that thing look cool and I'm sure it will be a good smoker. I like the pork butt it came out looking really fine and with a nice smoke ring to boot. My question for you is that those wheels you bolted to the bottom did you beef up the bottom or just thur bolt them thou the bottom.

I just bolted them through the bottom. It was a new barrel and I used all stainless nuts and bolts on the build.

Yup, I need to cook them longer next time, need to invest in a good therm. Well live and learn.

What is the door for? Water pan? Water soaked chunks? 200*?
