Hi guys. Here's a big thanks to all that shared their info on the UDS so others, like me, could have the knowledge to attempt one their self. I was gathering parts for the UDS for a few weeks and this weekend finally got it built. Here is some pics of the progress and final result. I had a hard time with the Weber lid fitting so with some bending and banging this is how I figure to use it. I have to have my smoked turkey. I did a test burn with 9 lbs of charcoal and after 9 hours it was still holding on at 210 degree. I had to hit the sack so I really don't know how long it really did last. Once again a big thanks to all.
