    Hey....I Recognize those drums!!

    And you didn't even call when dinner was done.

    How'd the meat smoke compared to your other smokers?

    Looks Great Roy!

    Looks like the drums turned out great. So did you like how they run? One thing I would suggest you do is get those drums up off of the cement on the driveway in the cold MN weather. I have heard horror stories of people's cement blowing up from the heat. You don't need a big hole in your driveway. I have a few caster type things I found at a local hardware sore or just a few bricks works good to just to get it up off the cement. We put a piece of plywood under our UDS last summer to save the lawn from burning a hole and the plywood kept smoldering so the bottoms can get pretty warm.

    Thanks everyone! 

    Todd forgot to call you. OOOOP's The wife thinks the ribs from the uds are better than any other smoker that i use. I really like using the uds easy control and very flavorful.

    Al i got a whole set with the spatula, tongs and brush as a gift from my folks. I will find out where they got them from and pm you with the info.

    Ross when i did a season burn on sat, nite i had it on the icy part of a driveway and the bottom was luke warm so i did it on the cement with no problems. Trying to get some bases built for them just ran out of time.

    Looks Great!!!!!  Awesome job. The food is looking pretty tasty.

    I love the look of the drums having smooth sides. 

    I had a charcoal thingy sitting on the curb warming up a fresh batch of coals one day and WAM!!!!!   Sounded like a gun shot, and it took out concrete about an inch deep the size of the coal thingy.

    Lemme just tell ya...this boy is "smokin crazy" a good way....his garage is FULL of smoking equipment, mostly UDS's.  Man I thought I was addicted.  Anyway, just bought my offset smoker from Smokingeagle, and am going to be painting it up and doing a smoke on it here pretty soon.

    Great looking UDS's Roy!
