R2-D2 Smoker

Over the summer, a big family-fun activity is to grill out. You always want to proudly wear your nerd badge, but with a normal grill, you may feel that youre just competing with the Jones. If you have access to a 55-gallon drum, you may be able to make your own grill in the image of R2-D2.

This is known in the barbequing community as an Ugly Drum Smoker (UDS) but with a good paint job you can make sure you are well-known as the local nerd on your block. This is also likely a lot cheaper than a giant gas grill that you would purchase anywhere else. If you were looking for a good summer project, here it is! The end product also results in steak and grilled goodies, so youll probably want to hop on this pretty quickly.

    So is this something that can be bought or is it just something cool someone built?
