    Default New uds build!

    Hey guys, just joined and I've decided to build a uds. I got a drum yesterday, closed head but it's all I could get and it was the right price, free! I'm gonna be building today so I will be updating throughout the process.

    Wish me luck guys, I'm off to buy some parts!

    I got it all thrown together, didn't take a lot of build pics because I was in the groove! I has blessed with the help of my brother and my two children so it was a very enjoyable build.

    Some pics





    Finished product

    Blew the budget by $5 total was $55 and that included a $12 new charcoal chimney. Got a loin on it now, almost done!!!

    I've found my first (almost fatal, to the q at least) flaw in design. The bolts holding the rack are just a hair too short and while tending to the meat the lid just nudged the rack and it fell! thankfully I had just foiled the loin and it missed the basket so all was well but lesson learned!!

    Should be coming off shortly so I can let it rest a bit then slice er up for lunch at work tomorrow!!
