      Default UDS - Ugly Drum Smoker

      this is a cheap smoker to make. it is effecient and like i said..very cheap to make...

      i didnt know where to post it, so if this is in the wrong spot, mods please move it.

      here is the link to the detailed build

      this is my build

      this is what is called a UDS..ugly drum smoker

      got a 55 gallon steel drum yesterday..looks like this

      and burn baby burn....lol

      finding any weber replacement grills are impossible here without spending $40 so i built them..not totally round

      coat of primer(most dont prime it but i had it down to bare metal..it needed it) plus intakes installed

      charcoal basket all done ready to go..

      all the hardware in place (the stuff on the inside of the drum is cooking spray not paint.lol)

      picked up one of these today for $14.99

      final paint...its a green pearl color..cant remember exactly..got it at the pawn shop for $3 a can..lol

      put around 6 lbs of unlit in charcoal basket around an old coffee can and lit 14 brickettes

      opened up 3 intake valves...quickly closed one... down to one intake fully open....holding perfect bbq temps, will check shortly and adjust accordingly

      4 hours later
