My father-in-law, Glenn, has been bitten by the BBQ bug. He has become a part of Four Q and works with me at the farmers market. Lately, he has been looking at smokers. I told him before he spent some money on a smoker, let's clean up the UDS and so he could use that to practice on. My Ugly Drum Smoker (UDS) hasn't gotten much work since I got the Spicewine so I figured it would be perfect for him. I found a tri-tip and a brisket point in the freezer for burnt ends so we went to work.
We turned out a great meal and he has a smoker at no cost. Seems like a great way to start the year.
