Hello people. It's been a very long time since my last real activity on here and I hope to change all that soon.

To help ease myself back into your good graces I have been busy over the last few weeks working on my 2nd attempt at a UDS. Well this time I can say I hit the JACKPOT!! I kept this one a bit more simple in construction and it has come out Perfect!!!!!!

Here are some pics. I can only hope that these pics ease the yelling that I am so deserving for not being around very much lately!!

THis is the drum before any work was done....

After I cut the top lip off it

After all needed holes where drilled

In the process of being burnt out!! (wood left over from the pile that Nova gave me for the last UDS attempt)

Webber grill and thermometer

I used a thin heat proof rubber seal to protect from the sharp edge left by removing the lip. This seal also makes the webber lid seal perfectly......Two birds with one stone......I was pretty happy with that outcome

Ta dar!!! the finished product. I have got 3 coats of pot belly black on the drum!!

Congrats Pippy! Nice comeback. You knew you couldn't show your face around here after such an absence and letting the old UDS become a pile of rust.

I hope this means you'll be posting more. Action pics please!

Now how many days did this one take? Or do we just add it on to the original days since that one rusted? :P
OHH YEAHHH!

Thanks mate, and yes this means I will be posting a lot more again!!

Well actually (hold onto your chair) this one only took me about 3 days from start to finish :D I have the basket burning out as I type and I will be doing a smoke with it next weekend.

I plan on brining and smoking my own ham for Christmas :)

The old UDS went to the dump many MANY moons ago!! lol

Awesome UDS! Looks like a lot of expertise went into the creation of that smoker.

Thank guys

I wouldn't say 'expertise' :) I would say it was more the learning outcomes from a very large failure on my first attempt at a UDS that helped this one be so much better......:D

Will have to find the link so people can see how bad it was :D
