I have been thinking about a UDS. I just bought the MES, but the thought of building my own smoker is just plain cool. My dad has a Weber 22.5 that has rusted out, but the lid and grates are good to go. Found a guy that has food grade barrels for 10 bucks. So I think I would be good to go pretty cheap, but I was wondering how hot do they get on the bottom or sides? Would it be ok sitting on a deck or do I need wheels or something? Also have little ones around and don't want them to get burned. Going to get a red and black UGA paint job.
