  1. Hello again,

    I am looking at building my own UDS but locatinga a barrel is harder than I thought, I was looking up what WSM - meant and relized it was a pretty good looking smoker. WIth a UDS I have to go through everything but it looks like the WSM has everything just a little pricer that a UDS.

    What'chall think

    I have a 22.5 & they are excellent smokers. Well built, and hold steady temps easily. I would highly recommend one.

    I owned an 18.5 WSM years ago and got rid of it for reasons I don't even remember. Big mistake! Afterwards, I built a UDS and used it for a dozen or so cooks. It held temps just fine, but it was nothing compared to the WSM. To me, the food in a UDS takes on less smoke and more of a grilled flavor due to the direct cooking, but that's just my opinion. I'm still weighing my options for the next smoker purchase and the 22.5 WSM is right up there. Good luck with your choice and remember that the WSM isn't cheap for a reason.
