UDS drums are taking the competition and backyard cooking circuit by storm, their unique airflow means you can cook all your normal BBQ cuts in a fraction of the time, hot and fast is the new low and slow, plus no baffle plate means you get meat rendering directly over your hot coals!

So naturally, Pro Smoke BBQ bring you the best home build kits direct from the US, no welding, just some cutting and these bolt-on kits are ready to go. All that you need is a 45-gallon drum, some time and possibly a beer.

 We've also upgraded this kit to have the laser cut stainless fire basket, this circular basket is king for airflow.
