Got bored, had paint

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I finished my UDS a few weeks ago, and as I cooked with it and read the forum I found additions that needed added. So I filled some bolt holes in the lid with heat RTV, added some carry handles, a 1 inch vent and cap in the back, and did some more bending and grinding on my grates for a better fit. A new coat of paint and some half assed stencil work " I'm no pro at painting,"not enough patience to wait for coats to dry enough" but all and all, I think it doesn't look badicon_cool.gif

Looks Great does not matter what it is, if it has this logo on it would look great.

Looks great,

Are you using the plate over the fire to diffuse the heat or is it just there to prevent the grease from dripping in the coals?

Thanks for the pics.

Both, it diffuses the heat, but it also steams the drippings and keeps the drum clean... just pull it out and hose it off.
