    How soon should I trim a brisket?

    Greetings to my Smoking Brethren! I'm cooking a brisket for a company lunch this coming Monday and I'm wondering how far ahead I should trim and rub it.

    UDS Paint Jobs

    I used regular old Rustoleum on my American flag UDS. Since I don't smoke over 275 degree temp isn't an issue. Aside from enduring a Wisconsin winter my UDS is still in pretty good shape. God Bless!

    UDS Paint Jobs

I decided that even though our country is experiencing some speed bumps with an out of control government and other turmoil we still live in the greatest country ever to exist on...

    Best Method for Burning Drum

    Greetings BMaddox, When I purchased my drum I told them I was making a UDS. They told me their drums are refurbished food grade drums and it appears as though it's already been sandblasted. I do know it has no liner so I plan to burn it anyway. I can use the extra cash I save on the ball...

    Best Method for Burning Drum

    Thanks FWI... The drum I purchased doesn't have a liner of any sort nor is it painted on the outside. I'll burn it after I get the holes drilled and will save some $$$ and only use one (1) ball valve. Thanks again! Happy Smokin' Doc
