Hey All,

Haven't posted any pics in a while, so thought I would take some time and show what I've been up to as of late.....

I decided to get in on the UDS bandwagon for smaller cooks for the family. I liked some of the ideas I have seen on here, so I went ahead and stole shamelessly from the likes of K.A.M. and KAKid. There are others too, so thanks a bunch! These things are crazy efficients and are easy to build. I still have some paint work left to do, but wanted to get cooking and I had a turkey breast roast I wanted to try out for possible T-day fodder........Enjoy.

The UDS.....
From the side:

From the Front:

Welded to the Handtruck:

I bolted the barrel about midway up to the hand truck and it is really solid:

The charcoal basket with K.A.M.'s handle:


I cooked up a couple BCC's with Big Ron's Original:


Here's a shot of my turkey breast roast....I must say this was really tasty, also with Big Ron's Original:

Sliced:


And Finally my plate:


I still have some learning to do....I didn't have a chance to fiddle with the intakes much as I was working on another project while it was cooking. I was trying to run the cooker at about 300-325, but I couldn't get it settled in and my 10 year old was operating the intakes with my instruction. I can see that it will run anywhere from about 225 up to at least 400, so I'm good with that, just need to fine tune it and learn where they need to be set at.

All the best,
Ed

Cat797, looking good. Very Happy
Both the UDS and the birds. Wink
A few cooks on it and you'll have it down, you're certainly off to a good start. Cool

Great job on the cooker and birds. The more you use it, the more you'll love it.
