Well I got home tonight with plans of making spaghetti for the boys. Unfortunately the power was out. We are all electric so I had nothing. Apparently a car clipped a pole neer us and shut down about 50% of the township. What to do? Light some charcoal and throw a couple of kid cuisines on the ugly drum ! Yep that happened tonight! Just about the time they came off the smoker the power came back on....go figure. Oh well....kids were happy and they had a hot meal.

Good thinking. Always good to have an alternative. . . I built an UDS years ago and for some stupid reason sold it. I remembered how much I enjoyed using it so I'm in the process of building another one.

Yea never thought i would put those on a smoker lol. I was telling my son we had to wait until the electric came back on so I could make dinner. He said..." Why dont you just use the smoker?" Lol. Found those in the freezer so thats what we did. That kid is one good problem solver!

That looks like a nice little rig. Here is the thread I have going on it. More of a stand up type like my big drum.
