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!
The people I build for love them
Great quality and great look
Love this cooking grate
Perfect fit and function
These uprights are amazing. They are heavy duty and fit the drum very well. Very easy to install as well. I definitely recommend these uprights from smoker builder along with all of their other products.
Fast shipping awesome people hope to visit smoker builder in person one day!
These people make some kick ass stuff. My build so far has been flawless. Super satisfied.
I’ve been around grilling n smoking for over 30 years. I’ve owned just about every kind of smoker there is... Except the drum.
I’ve had ( and still have many ) Electric, Gas, Pellet, Offset stick and reverse flow to name a few.
I decided I wanted to try a drum. I started researching all the drums I could. Then I came upon the Draftmaster from Smokerbuilders MFG.
There is no other drum like it out there. It easily handles concerns about hot spots and consistent cooking results I had. The system channels all intake air to the bottom of the extra heavy duty basket. Combined with a user tuneable heat diffuser plate, That not only provides even heat distribution and flow, It increases efficiency for extra long cook cycles.
Shipping was prompt, Assembly easy. And what caught me instantly was the quality of the cuts ( CNC Plasma) and the thickness of the metal used. All nuts n bolts are stainless steel. This thing is made to last! Being new to drums I had a few questions. Frank and Tom were always eager to help with any and all questions. These guys know us and know smokers. I’ve got at least three dozen cooks over the last two months in my drum and I couldn’t be happier! Flavor is awesome, Burn rate is steady and easily controllable. Your gonna start seeing these drums at competitions everywhere!
Worked really good. Could not be more pleased with my first build. Thanks for the support with my questions
Works great! The original wasn't even close to displaying the correct temp. Quality made and accurate. What more do you need?
All of the parts are clean cut and precise fit. Everything arrived (including the barrel) in perfect condition.
Great built, very helpful and friendly customer service. Highly recommend
Piece of cake to build.Finished with VHT Flameproof in clear and flat black.This thing holds temp perfectly!Highly recommend building one for yourself!
SOLID!Built like a tank and rolls smooth!Keeps Draftmaster close to the ground making it the perfect height for me to reach in!Highly recommend getting yourself one if you’re less than 6’ tall.Best part is no extra holes to drill!
After receiving the guage, it was very impressive with the shinny stainless steel surrounding a large 3 inch dial. I couldn't wait to install it on my twin smoker and "give it the test". I built a fire in the fire box after easily installing it into my 1/2 inch (npt) opening and watched the analog needle do it's thing. I did question the reading and felt that the guage was a little off from what I thought the temperature inside the chamber should be. I went and got my digital guage with probes and put the probes inside the cooking area near the 4 inch probe protruding from the new guage. To my surprise both the digital, and the new analog guage were reading the same temperature, I was sold... I did buy 2 guages (twin cookers) and both gauges did the same thing. If the analog guage had been off, I would have probably adjusted it with the adjustment screw in the back of the guage. I've used other gauges and this guage is great, I need to buy two more of these for the twin warmers.
