    Hi All

    Based in England and am a true carnivore so always fancied some smoking, i had a look at buying an off-the-shelf smoker and "almost" got one those cheap and cheerful offset ones for about £100 off ebay, until i read many forums and blogs saying to avoid them, and instead build a Ugly Drum Smoker.. "Build a What?!" i thought to myself.

    Anyway only about ten days later and i am half way into my UDS build, bought the Big Poppa UDS kit (amazingly available here in England!) as frankly even though it cost more i figured it quicker and easier than hunting for all the right parts and working out measurements etc, so yea lazy and bought a kit..oops

    Anyway, ill start a different topic for the UDS build, sure ill have plenty of other questions soon!
