S you want to smoke some meat... part 3

So you want to smoke some meat... part 3


For those who like to live the DIY lifestyle, there is no need to go out there and buy expensive smokers.  With a few parts, you might be able to build your own.

Behold, the Ugly Drum Smoker or UDS.

Your UDS can take many shapes and sizes.
Here is one that was built by a fellow BBQer in Cochrane, my good friend Bill Pudim.
Basically, you start with a 55 gallon drum.  In the bottom you create a firebox and put a shelf or two inside as a cooking surface.

Here are a few links to help you with instructions on how to build an Ugly Drum Smoker.

There's also a Facebook Group where you can find out more about Ugly Drum Smokers.

Another way of making a cheap smoker is with an old Filing Cabinet.
Here is a Youtube link about how to build one.

I hope some of these ideas inspire the Do-it-yourselfer in you!
