My old Royal Oak grill from Wal-Mart rusted out at the ash pan support, so I'm looking at new grills. Found this at Sam's Club and to me it seems better then most, a little bigger and heavier then my old one, and I like the twin chambers!

Since alot of you have more time behind a grill then me, thought it would be a good idea to get your opinions, pro or con, before I spend my cash! Cool

Ive heard good words about them, but its like you say, they are big + heavy.

If thats not a problem, its a buy.

Me , I like small + portable, (Weber Kettle for me.)

The Weber is a classic, but when I grill at home I usually feed 9-15 people before I'm done and I like having more room to work with. Plus I like the idea of the dual chambers, can start a low fire on one side and get my chicken started while I have my steaks going on the other side...

Thought about the little table top Weber for when it's just me...

Sounds to me like you have your mind made up! Go for it man! That grill is going to make you happy, and the things you don't like (you will find them after a few good uses) you can always mod!

Looks like a nice set up to me. Cool Do they have a display model you can check out before hand?

They do, though I have no doubt the kid they had assemble it didn't read the instructions! Laughing
Still, I like the design, the price ain't bad, and the metal is pretty thick.Thought about getting a pellet grill, but I want to learn on a charcoal grill. Kinda like driving a stick before getting an automatic, you know? (Besides, I'm spending plenty of money already!)

I'll admit I like the idea and the look of a UDS (It appeals to my redneck side!) but I still need to restore a Studebaker car and three John Deere tractors! Another issue: I don't weld... Sad

On the positive side I think horses are beautiful, my best friend is an Irish Setter named Elsie, women give men both the best and the most confusing times of their life, and I'm here! Cool

Mausersmth you do any welding skills to make a UDS. When I built mine I used nothing but hand tools and did not lay down a single bead. Really the only tools you need are a drill, some step bits, and a couple end wrenches to tighten up the bolts.

I like that grill at sams too. If I was in need of a grill I would give that alot of consideration. I love how you can adjust the height of the charcoal for temp adjustment and it does seem to be made fairly well. The wife hit me on the back of the head when I started playing with it saying the last thing you need is another toy to cook on Surprised

I bought that same grill at sam's a few years ago, I told my wife this will be the last grill I need, I can do anything on it, grill or low and slow,lol. I still love it but I decided I needed more cooking space, so I'm still thinking about putting an offset on it or something in the storage area, was even thinking about a smaller barrel drum for the fire box with some kind of curved connection going into the cooking chamber.

I have a thread on this setup. Anyway, not tryin to jack your thread,I say go for it, lot of options on it.

I went andd saw it in person and thought the charcoal trays and the mechanism looked weak...IT didnt look like it would last more than a season
nice concept kind of like a hasty bake
