Has anyone modded a UDS to catch the grease? I have had quite a few cooks in mine over the past few weeks ( 3 briskets, chicken thighs 2 times and a 12lb bottom roast ) I am noticeing a puddle of grease settleing on the bottom of the drum. i know drilling a few small holes in the bottom of the UDS is a bad idea cause it will draw more air in, most likely.

Maybe some sort of hanging pan? or do you guys just not worry about it and let it go?

I could never add to a KAM suggestion but I had some left over lighter fluid from my ignorant days so I squirted it all around the drum and lit her off. I had some bushes to burn that I had cut so I tossed them in as well. Didn't do too bad. Everything was an ash that hosed out very easy...

After 2 smokes on my UDS, I have the same problem.

SoEzzy recommended one of these a while back.
I have yet to pick one up. Will look today.

Chicken seems to make the biggest mess. Just clean as best you can and every once in a while, I like to burn it out again with a nice hot fire. Good luck.
