Thanks,
Jsmith, it's just vertical shelving strips with tabs that you just pinch into whatever slot height you want. I used three vertical strips evenly spaced 1/3 of the way around the drum, screwed in to the drum. The tabs were a little loose in the slots, so I had to "open" the tabs a little with a flat screwdriver. Tougher to pinch in, but once they're in, they're tight. One of my grills fits perfect on the slots, one is a little smaller diameter, and so I have to be careful when I put it in and grabbing meat off it, etc.

Thanks,
Sorry, Jsmith. I picked it up at Home Depot in the shelving aisle. I hit the strips and the tabs with the propane torch to burn off whatever coating is on also.

Thanks Icebox, ended up finding it at Home Depot but decided to go a different route. Thanks for the tip, I have a buddy that is going to use this setup so I'll pass it along.

Default UDS is ready

Hey everyone, after hours of well spent time on this forum, I was able to complete my UDS build and start a new hobby. Newbie at smoking so it will be a learning process but with the wealth of knowledge you have provided I have a feeling I'll pick up the basics pretty quickly. Thanks for all of you who have taking the time to share and I look forward to continue to learn from your experiences as well as my own. Now if you could please excuse me, I should probably get back to my craft beer while I sit outside soaking in the aroma of apple wood smoke and spare ribs

Congrats on your build; looks great.
Don't forget the most important rule. You cannot eat anything from your first 5 cooks. Must flash freeze and ship to the last five Brethren who posted to this thread. They will make sure the food is safe and Brethren worthy.

Best of luck.

Thanks Bob for looking out. I have seasoned it for probably a total of 20 hours and followed seasoning advice from previous posts. Had temps above 400 with lots of smoke and a variety of meats that were tossed. Though it has only been 3 cooks, do you think I am good to go with that amount of cook time. Original barrel was sand blasted and then I burned it out followed by a vinegar wipe down, oil spray and a thorough seasoning as mentioned above. Thought I was good based on what others have posted and would hate to toss a good meat but defianantly want to play it safe.

Once again I appreciate your concern and advice. Everyone on here has been great!

I guess you are ok then. I will authorize and one-time exemption from the rules as long as you agree to the following condition. You must create a new thread with details and pron of your next cook. Agreed?

You're too kind! I guess with all that this site has given me, the least I could do is post my next cook! Thanks for the pass this time
