    So, there's not much of a recipe to this but some of you might like it.

    Start with a slab of beef shortribs these were about $12/kg:

    Coat with what is called a "Dalmatian Rub" 90% roughly cracked black pepper and 10% salt, you really want a good coating.

    Start preparing your coals for the BBQ. Protip, the best way to get the whole lot lit quickly without using an accellarant is by firing a leafblower at the coals till they're all ashed over.

    The dog needs a bit of a lie down after headbutting the post in the previous picture.

    Insert slab'o'meat.

    All hail the UDS.

    And because man cannot live on beef alone... the beverages for the afternoon.

    And because man cannot live on beef and beer alone we added pork ribs and chicken wings.

    Stupidly I didn't take a picture of the end product on the night. But the next morning we made some damn good breakfast burgers. Brioche buns, home made Big Mac sauce, shredded short rib, melted emmenthal cheese, pickles, red onion, avocado and hot sauce. Basically a damn good McRib.

    Money shot.

    I'll weed the paved areas and wrap the dogs head with bubble wrap.

    I may have to look into these ugly drum smoker contraptions. Could be a hobby for my old man.

    The UDS was great. I already had the weber grill to put in it (from my kettle) so the whole thing only cost me $70 to build.

    Hey kieran, I've had their Hop Rod Rye a few times but will give the Racer5 a go - always on the lookout for good beers!
