    Well here it is, in all it's "ugly" glory. Still need to play with the temp control, but it gets right up there. Am hoping to do 2 regular fatties today. Wind is gusting at 30. I'll see how things look come daylight. Played with chich wings last night, they turned out fair. Temp control thing.

    Form follows function.......
    In other words don't matter how it looks. It matters how it cooks.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I've been trying to get that thru architects and designers heads for years. They KILL me.. "You can't put a motion detector/camera/keypad/whatever there!"

    Well, did you want the system to work, or look better?

    Sheesh.

    In all honesty, this UDS just blows me away. Yesterday ... Wind at 15 with 30 /40 gusts. No problem to fire up. Went past temp quickly, had to throttle it back down. Threw 2 fatties on get to see if it would really do what it was supposed to do. In this weather ... "amazing" ... I could have smoked a butt.











    The smell of the grease falling back onto the coals, then out the exhaust....Fantastic ....

    Now ... Onto building #2 with all the bells & whistles.


    This morning theres a foot of snow on it. Gonna get it into the garage..

    desertlites ... If your not sure of what was in those barrels, I personally wouldn't risk it. This really isn't a bigger smoker. It only has 1 22.5" grill from a weber grill.

    But they have been trained in a diametrically opposed environment. Almost "exact opposite". It's all about "graceful lines and complementing colors" Gags me, really.
