    One of my co-workers introduced me to smoked meat, and I was so hooked I designed and built my own smoker.

    Takes a little while to get up to temperature, but it maintains temperature quite well with very slow charcoal consumption.

    It's a variation of the Ugly Drum Smoker and MAGNUM FORCE ( smoker.


    Results from my first use, smoking hot sausages:

     Welcome to SMF!!!

     Nice idea for the  Mutant UDS.

     The one thing that i was really worried about w/ your smoker you covered in your diagram.

     If anyone decides to build out this unit ,Make sure and renforce the legs.

     The pit as is  was not designed to hold the weight of a barrel and the weight of the extra meat you can now put in it.
  10. Nice UDS ! ! One up on me ! I'm still in planning stage for my UDS and looking for the best parts without spending to much not that thats a problem just. The hunt is part of the fun. The sausage looks great, Whats next?

    Welcome aboard! Looking forward to more of your post!  Nice looking UDS hybrid you got there.  I've finally found a barrel and will be starting on my UDS project soon.  As you've seen already, there's some great information and some of the best folks on here that are more than willing to share freely whatever they know just to help out!  Great place!  
  12. nice! welcome to the forum, i have found the people here great! looking forward to seeing more of what your UDS produces. its a beauty! [​IMG]
