These guys rock!!!! You will not meet or see any better quality than what these guys do. I started out with an idea, and they helped put it on paper and finally into a dream that I always wanted... nevertheless, there is no disappointment!!! I now am the proud owner of a very awesome reverse flow smoker. Don’t hesitate, call them to build your smoker and have the quality that will last you a lifetime. Heads and shoulders above any else! Oh yea, it turns out a beautiful brisket!! Thanks Frank and Tom
Air intakes came in today they look great. Ordering 2 more. Great work guys.
Very mice well built and functional
This is a great heavy duty basket and it works great in my drum. The shipping was fast and the assembly only took maybe 5 minutes. I will do business here again.
Pinwheel has worked perfectly for my smoker design.
Great weld on hinges worked perfect
Shipping was stupid fast. This thing is built solid. I converted my PBS to a UDS. It completely changed the way my drum runs. Absolutely love it.
Once you figure out the sweet spots of the dampers this set up holds Temps steady!
This is great! A little difficult if your drum has ribs in them but it still works well
Being an adamant smoker of bbq I was completely impressed with their timeliness on responses, answers to questions and in the end... their product worked perfectly! Highly recommend!
This charcoal basket really is heavy duty! It's super easy to put together and the ash tray is built right into the bottom. The handle is a nice addition too. It's big enough that I used it to burn over 16 hours on my first cook and I didn't even have the basket full when I started! Well made and fits easily through the block off plate when placing it into the drum.
I was looking for some parts to rebuild/update my Ugly Drum Smoker and found the block off plate, baffle plate and heat shield combo. I originally bought it to have more control when cooking with the baffle plate, which it does easily, by bending the flaps to control different areas to put more or less heat in specific areas. The block off plate really helps to control the draft sending the air flow where you want it. I was really surprised about how well the heat shield works. I bought it to keep from burning the paint off the barrel, but I also realized another big plus for this part. It keeps the side of the barrel cool enough that, when cooking, you can actually place you hand right on the side of the barrel without getting burned. If you, like me, have kids that are always running around and you are afraid they might get burned if they run into the drum while you are cooking, buy this today! All of the parts are built with accuracy and quality and do what exactly what Frank and Tom say they will do!
Great quality fast service, I will be back.
Hey Frank thanks again for the dampers. They were very easy to install and worked wonderful for the projects I had going. I look forward to doing more business with you
Great intakes very well built
Great exhaust I will use this product from now on
Love this charcoal basket. The size and how strong it is.
Thanks for the nice intakes I had purchased some like this from another place before I heard about you guys and tried to order the same ones from the same place after calling several times and talking to them they didn’t carry these anymore looked on here found them and they even came with hardware witch the other place didn’t provide the hardware and got them in a couple of days thanks once again!
Keeps the temp dead on at what ever you set it at! It's literally a set it forget it system. Sends the data to your PC or phone in real time. Do long over night cooks without worrying. I love it! Highly recommend!
They work great.
Can I substitute the blockoff for a 22.5 laser cut cooking grate on the combo you have
Did an awesome job keeping temp low where I wanted it and had no issues on my cook.
Excellent product. Well made a very quick delivery. Highly recommend this product.
looking forward to starting this build! Layout decisions taken care of my build should be a breeze. I like the YouTube videos
Exactly what I needed for handles. Thanks
When I received the kit the first thing that I did was inspect for damage to the drum. There was no damage what so ever to the drum it was in perfect condition. I was amazed at the weight of the drum and all the parts that were inside. This kit was first class in fabrication and went together very nicely with the aid of the beautiful template that was furnished. The extra cost for the low profile cart was well worth the money as it rolls easily even with the weight of the UDS. I spent several weeks weighing all the other companies drum smoker kits and settled on SmokerBuilder and I am glad that I did. Frank and Tom were easy to talk to and answered all my questions. If anyone is looking to build a UDS you can't go wrong with their kits. Will send picture when I finish painting it. To say that I am well satisfied is an understatement. Thanks SmokerBuilder. Nick
Wow, amazing quality parts for an UDS. Excellent customer service. Frank called me and discussed different shipping options. Everything was shipped and picked within 27 hours. Can’t ask for better or faster shipping and customer service! Compared to other manufacturers in the UDS world, SmokerBuilders parts are better quality and better built!
Very good quality.
Glad I have the added protection for the paint job on my UDS.
Worked great on my barrel, just wish you could purchase a smaller amount. Certainly don't need 15 ft for a UDS.
This Thing Is A Beast. Holds More Charcoal Than You’ll Ever Need In One Cook. Extremely Easy To Assemble. Put It Together In About 3 Minutes
Very Clean and Classic Look. Love That The Stainless Helps To Break Up The Color
I purchased the starter kit back in April and acquired a new barrel from a local manufacture here in Houston. The quality (fit and finish) of these laser cut parts is outstanding and with the template the build was a breeze. I highly recommend these kits for anyone thinking about building a UDS. This thing cooks like a dream and i have cooked (ribs, chick qtrs, burgers, wings briskets) on it just about every weekend since finishing the project. Thanks Smokerbuilder!!
Excellent for a DIY Smoker!
