Well as i said in my intro thread, just ten days ago id never even heard of a UDS.! I was merely looking to buy a cheap offset smoker off ebay and then of course i read many topics suggested for the money a UDS build was far wiser. So here i am just days later building my UDS already! Hoping to have it usable and smoking next week! I decided to get the Big Poppas UDS Kit, as frankly i was feeling lazy and the thought of hunting shops etc for all the right size parts etc and then awaiting deliveries etc AND then working out measurements etc... Yea so well i just went easy option and bought the kit! Got my drum off Ebay, managed to get an unlined open top drum so thankfully no horror lining to get out. So far this weekend i have drilled out all the holes for the parts, had a burn out, sanded/grinded down the drum. Hopefully get a first coat of VHT paint on it before the end of the day too.. And i must go and find the UK Group whilst im here too!
