So I built my UDS. I still have some things to finish on it but it's a smoker now. Got 2 barrels from the scrap yard for $4 each. Picked up a few nuts and bolts, some expanded metal, and some new grates from Home Depot. I had a Sears kettle style grill with a hinged lid that I used the lid off of. http://i.imgur.com/VsarHdL.jpg http://i.imgur.com/3VA3gsU.jpg http://i.imgur.com/2EFjIk5.jpg Curing...... the lid doesn't fit http://i.imgur.com/tS5Y3zq.jpg So I cut a strip out of the other barrel and riveted it in on the existing one. Hole is great to stick the thermometer probes through. http://i.imgur.com/SDAGSw3.jpg Can I help daddy? http://i.imgur.com/EhcxEFa.jpg?
