Building my first Ugly Drum Smoker (UDS); from beginning to completion! (Video)
This video shows how to build a Ugly Drum Smoker (UDS) from scratch.
Ugly Drum Smokers (UDS) are simple smokers to build and operate yet they put out some really good barbecue.
With a 1/3 basket it held a 250 degree average for 5-6 hours with all intakes wide open during the seasoning step!!
The four elbow exhaust configuration seems to work out fine!.Everything else that I purchased came from Lowes, The Tractor Supply Co. and Walmart (2 BBq Grills).
Good commercial smokers range from $400 and up. High-end smokers like the Big Green Egg can cost near $1000 and aren’t appreciably better than a UDS which you can build for about $200
