    UDS smoked burgers with battered fries...

    Got in Friday evening, fired up the UDS for some burgers, hard to beat a smoked / grilled burger off a UDS over Kingsford charcoal and a few wood chunks.  About half of my charcoal basket was full of unlit from my last cook, so I started a half chimney of charcoal, added 2 chunks of oak and 1 of...

    Another UDS build...

    Been building UDS cookers for a few years, started out building some mini ones out of 15 gallon drums, then moved on to the 55 gallon variety.  For my friends I build them at cost, but typically I will build and sell at $225 each.  After several builds, you start to find easier ways to do...

    Why are links being deleted...?

    I can understand removing links to competing websites, but I had a post yesterday with 2 very informative links to non-competing websites (BBQ competition organizations) deleted and the post altered.  I saw another post from another member this morning with what was a link to an ebay item, but...

    My mini UDS builds...

    I finally got my drums yesterday, unfortunately my guy had told me they were 30 gallon, but when he brought them by, they are actually 15 gallon.  The good thing is they are new from a local packaging facility, never been used, the liner is a pull out plastic bag, clean with lids.  The bad thing...

    Separated brisket cook...

    I consider myself a brisket expert, being from Texas, I should be.  I think it's the official state meat, if not, it should be!  I have cooked them just about anyway known to man, except in the slow cooker, YUK!  I've cooked them fat side up, fat side down, wrapped and unwrapped, foiled, butcher...

    And the mods continue for my RF trailer pit...

    After a number of discussions with Dave and others with their builds here, I had come to the conclusion I needed to try a mod for my RF pit.  Mine is a fuel hog, I start my fires with 20#'s of charcoal in a coal basket I built, then start chunking splits on the coals once the top layer gets...

    Planning a rib cook off...any ideas?

    Looking for some of you to throw some ideas at me on running a small rib cook off here in my hometown to benefit the local VFW.  I am only figuring on maybe 10 competitiors (really small town), but I am planning on opening it up to "cooking ribs by any means necessary" to allow for gas grills...

    150 Gallon RF Rig...Upgraded!

    Earlier this year (March) I completed my first build, a 150 gallon RF rig on a trailer.  My 2 purposes for building it were to start cooking in some competitions and give me more Qpacity.  It has done both admirably and the smoker itself doesn't need any upgrades, but the trailer she sits on...
