Hello! My name is Matt and I am a smoke-aholic. I am 27 and live in Utah. I built my own Mini UDS a couple months ago and have smoked on it every weekend since. I work for an oil distribution company and had a couple empty 16 gallon drums lying around, so I took one home and messed with it until I had something that resembled a smoker. I read a bunch of different threads on this site during the building process and through the first couple BBQs. I found a bunch of useful information, so thanks to everyone for that. I invited a few close friends over for my smokers first test run and they were all so impressed they had me make each of them one. We generally have two or three Minis going each weekend with different recipes going on each one. My profile avatar is a picture of my smoker and I have also added a few pictures of some food I've done in the last couple weeks. I look forward to learning a lot more and reading everyone else's recipes. Thanks!
