I do have a third rack down above the basket for a water bowl but I haven't gotten a metal bowl yet so I am using a very large tin turkey pan and I have thrown on a 9 lb pork loin just to test this thing and I have to say I love it. It's been holding 225 since I started. I guess the thing I need to figure out is when smoking a brisket or butt to make sure I have enough fuel and wood so I don't have to remove the racks before I'm done cooking

I am using a threaded rod in the middle of the basket bolted through the bottom and the top I have an i hook so I can use my rod and hook it in the middle to pull it out.

Hey, that has the same exact bend in it as the last loin I cooked on a drum. LOL But I told the kids that I was cooking a big snake.

Nice work on the drum.

Now your smoker looks fabulous and what comes out of it looks awesome too. Now you will enjoy that UDS for many years to come I'm sure or that.
