Hi all

I made a UDS yesterday and had to try it out today :clap:

i started out with 2 chimney starter full of Kingsford Blue with about 10 lighted to use the minon method,

after i got the UDS up to 250 i put on two ten lbs Butts, the time i but the butts on was 11:00 AM

i had one problem getting the temp back where i needed it to to , i open all three nipples and the temp just got to 221:crazy:

i had to add more hot Charcoal to my basket , after adding this the UDS
Locked in running 250 for five hours and they the temp started to clime up around 275 ,

i wrap after running 5 hours , check again after 6 hours UDS temp was 284 , meat temp was 197

check the temp just now temp still at 209
this would be almost 10 hours later :thumb:

very happy with the UDS i just did not put enough lit charcoal in in the beginning,

Butts had a great color and were dead on :heh:

Sounds good in the end, it takes a couple of cooks to learn a UDS. Nice cooking.
