    Anyone built one of these?

    I am considering buying one of these kits for my buddy fir Christmas. I want to ask about the quality. I have a Gateway for reference. How nice are these?

      My brother built one from a kit. He has trouble maintaining temp.

        Hey SavageSmoke - I did build a UDS from scratch, not a kit. I used the smoke stack intake tubes, exhaust pipe,and lid handle from UDSParts.com so I can only speak on them. The parts are great quality and the company was good until someone hacked their servers and stole customer accounts. So there’s that.

        Big drum smokers are good smokers. I would think they are just bigger versions of bullet smokers or a PBC. They hold a lot of food and can hold steady temps for long periods of time once you get the hang of them. I can burn 18 - 20 lbs. in mine for entire brisket cooks without having to add charcoal. I think longest cook I’ve done on it is 15 hours give or take. I am sure it could go longer than that.

        I have never used up all the cooking real estate on the two grill grates in mine. Usually the top grate is enough for my cooks.

        As far as a Christmas gift goes the cool factor on these goes way up! Who wouldn’t want a UDS BBQ kit for Christmas? Hope this helps!

        Man, you should get that 30 gallon drum kit, and put a couple set of holes near the top to run rebar so you can hang meat......oh, wait.....
