Well my start has been postponed until tomorrow. The weather has been shotty around my house, I have to work outside because of bad lighting in my garage, not to mention I don't feel like sweeping it out after I am done. Thats what grass is for... :P It has been raining of and on all day here... SUX, but I will get this going tomorrow even if it is just to measure things out. And let us not forget the pictures. HA!

Never said I was a cheap skate LOL, well I don't remember saying it. I am building a UDS, because my offset consumes way too much fuel during a smoke. I will still use it for big smokes, but for just a couple racks of ribs something smaller is better.

I have been really thinking of using the top for the bottom and cutting the bottom out. My lid I have fits perfectly on the bottom, and with the barrel inverted it would be a hell of alot easier to clean out the ash. The top the the barrel I have seals itself, so I guess I have a choice to make on my hands.

Any input would be appreciated.
