    My UDS Build. Love it so far!!

    Got tired of trying to get a firebox to seal. All I wanted was something that I could control the temps on and get good flavor.In my opinion this has got to be the easiest smoker to use. As you can see I had a weber lid. It fits perfectly! The drum was a sealed top that had coolant that goes in...

Of course her first question is: "If I were to die would you re-marry?" After some thought the husband replies"Yes, I suppose so" To which...

    Reverse flow problems

    I just recently turned my grill into a reverse flow and am having problems with it. First off the   CC is a 16" diameter and 34" long. That gives 6832.64" cube of air space. Feldon's recommends 2277.55" cube for the fire box. Mine is 18"x15.5"x9" giving a total of 2511.00" cube. That is 233.45"...

    I am trying to get my smoker mods done and was wondering, on the exhaust pipe does the straight piece coming out of the CC count as a useless area of CC or do you add it to the length of the exhaust? I don't want to mess this up twice. Already having to fix my original mistakes!!
