    I could not believe that they are controling how we cook now. What's next? Maybe we will only be able to eat tofu sausage. We will all turn into hippies! No disrespect to the hippies......

    Just put together an Electric UDS. The Electric element can be bought at Cabela's for forty dollars and PID controllers can be bought at a reasonable price on Ebay. UDS will be able to smoke more lbs of meat than your average store bought electric smoker. Not that they don't do a great job, but I usually need to smoke 30 to 40 lbs of meat at a time.

    If you can drill holes, use a wrench, and, use a sander, then you can build your own UDS.

    Many Garden style condo's it is against the fire code to use charcoal.   They get burned down.
