Welcome to Bristol Drum Smokers.
We are a small, family run business, passionate about all things food and BBQ.
Often known as a UDS (ugly drum smoker), we take pride in producing custom, hand built smokers that cook as good as they look. Far from ugly, they will be a stand out feature in your garden, or an eye catching addition to your existing smoker collection.
With our Drums and accessories we provide everything you need to help you deliver quality results every time. What's more is they are super versatile. Used as a smoker just one fill of the charcoal basket will keep going for up to 20 hours, ideal for long cooks such as a delicious beef brisket, or the ultimate pulled pork. By simply raising the charcoal basket you can use as a conventional BBQ to grill. The temperature is so easy to control we've even cooked a baked cheesecake in one!
Whether you are well seasoned in all things BBQ, or a complete beginner, you'll find something for you on these pages.
User-friendly 'how-to' guides including low 'n' slow and hot 'n' fast cooking techniques for meat lovers and vegetarians alike. Try out some of our competition winning recipes to impress friends and family.
WARNING: SMOKING IS HIGHLY ADDICTIVE!
