    Cool

    A quick revisit to my build.

    The pineapple can gave up the ghost about a year in. I tried a soda pop aluminum can but it didn't hold up at all. I finally came across a thread that mentioned the IKEA silverware container that would work so I finally got a chance to visit the one here in Houston and raided them fer two since they were $2 each. https://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30011832/

    Here's what I did fer my air vent/spark arrestor.

    Cut it down to size and opened up the side.


    Screwed a lid on the inside so ash won't drop directly into the air port.


    Spark arrestor in place


    Charcoal grate in place


    Heat insulator plate


    Battle weary charcoal pot on the heat insulator plate


    Smoker ready to go!


    Time will tell on how well this will hold up. Crossing my fingers!!

    Cool

    I noticed that the UDS users hang their brisket so I figured I would modify another pot and make it my hanging brisket pot. Easy peasy! Modified a Weber tool hanger to hang the brisket from the 1/2"x24" rebar rod. It's gonna take a few burns to git the "hang" of the new pot.

    Cool

    Lopped off the ends and added some points to the tool holder. It should make it easier to poke throught the flat end of the brisket.
