I am taking my UDS out on its first unattended overnight cook. Getting the temps to stabilize now and going to bed soon. Got a 10lb brisket on.

This past weekend I did two 8 lb butts a 8 lb top sirloin roast and 4 racks of ribs on the UDS. It was the toughest cook so far and I am searching for answers...

My temps weren't as stable and I had to have all the air intakes open to hold 250. There was a lot of moisture around the top of the drum. Cooking times went up significantly. Air temps weren't too bad (upper 60s), it was a bit windy, but I put up the tent with the sides.

The butts took 10 hours and the ribs took 6 1/2 hours. The butts turned out really well but the ribs never did get much of a bark.

The only things I can think of are that all of the moisture dripping kept the briqs from burning as well and/or their was so much more meat that the airflow between the meat was restricted.

What do you folks think??

It sounds Like an AirFlow problem to Me,I think that would be the reason for the Condensation that You were seeing at the top of the drum !! Never cooked on a drum though. I am sure that the drum Users will chime in shortly. Just My $.02

Only condensation I ever had with mine was at a contest in the fog by the beach.

Norcoredneck 03-19-2007 02:24 PM

I left charcoal out and it drew moisture in. I experienced the same. Now I store charcoal in a plastic trash can with a semi sealed lid.

Jaberwabee 03-19-2007 08:02 PM

I am convinced am planning my next project will be on of these. I found some that were used to hold olive oil and can get them for next to nothing.

Norcoredneck 03-19-2007 08:11 PM

Started these at 10:00 today. Held 230 all day. 6:00 now and taking a nap. Hauling all + crock pot full of beans, and chips to work tonight.
