Completed 1st UDS build/First cook on new UDS
 
Okay so here are pics of my first UDS build and the meat I turned out from it. I marinated the tri-tip over night in Dr. Pepper, and rubbed it with Bone Suckin' Sauce and Famous Dave's dry rubs before I threw it on. It came out tender and juicy, but a little too strong on the smoke flavor. I'll have to perfect that. I got my offset smoker down, now just gotta figure out how not to over smoke on the UDS. Any advice? I think I used too many wood chunks or something.

BTW, I wanna give a big thanks to Norcoredneck and his post, "If a redneck wanted to build a UDS". A lot of info there. And thanks to everyone else who answered all my questions during my build!

Looking great from here :thumb: Now, how many wood chunks are you using? Also, no ball valve to control airflow?

The ball valve is on the opposite side, but it is there. I used six fist sized chunks of apple wood. One right on top, two midway down, and three near the bottom of my charcoal basket

I cooked it at 200 for about 3 hours and then brought it up to between 225-250 for the last 40 minutes. I pulled off the tri-tip once it reached an internal temp of 157.

Thanks! My daughter took the pics. She wants to be a photographer. She'll be glad to hear that

Nice drum gambler. You only need about 2-3 chunks of wood half that size. The amount you used would definately over smoke the meat. Let us know how the next one turns out.

Very nice UDS, except that drum is a thing of beauty!
