    Smoked Turkey recipe / injection

    Montreal Chicken is a seasoning made by McCormick Company. You can usually find it in the food store, I get mine from Sams Club. I didn't mention in my post that I put the Montreal Chicken in my coffee grinder. Reducing it to a finer grain makes application easier.

    Two Piece UDS Build with Pics

    I agree with coffee_junkie  cooking in an open pit style does bring a unique flavor to the meat. This is why the UDS is so universal. It can be used as a water cooker, deflected heat, or and open pit. Awesome build.

    eyelet holes for UDS?

    As you can see I use a brass fitting. I cut the end off and drill a hole in the UDS just above the top grate. If  I have a second grate I do the same just above  it and in line with the top inlet. I have several reasons why I do what I do. Again the beauty of the UDS is that you can fashion it...

    I might have a really good UDS lid idea...maybe

    You didn't say what kind of welder you were using or maybe I missed it, however to prevent burning through on your Weber lid (mig welding) start your weld on the rim of the barrel and allow the pool to flow to the lid. Use short quick welds because you can burn through the rim also. Repeat the...

    Smokin John's UDS Build

    Just finished this UDS build and giving it the final burn. I was able to purchase the lid from a guy who had posted his grill on Craigslist. I competed in a KCBS event this past weekend at The Capital Cookoff in Lexington, NC and used my Big Red UDS to cook my beef brisket. I finished 13th in...

    Smokin John's UDS Build

    I couldn't wait for the local college kids to start setting their Weber grills out on the curb, as they clean their apartments getting ready to go home for the Summer, so I bought one off the Craigslist. I paid $40 bucks for it; it's in good condition. I got a cover with it that fits my UDS...

    UDS temp control Cant get it below 250

    Ghilljr as was stated you may have a leak at your air inlet, however looking at your drum you have a lot of leakage from grease or tar from heavy smoke. Whatever the case is, it is a sign that you lid does not have a tight fit. For a UDS to perform at its peak it must be air tight. Some builders...
