Shortening the intakes on my UDS
 
I have been told in another question I had about temp flucuations that if I lowered my risers that it would help with the flucuations. The Question now is I have been given (free)24" 3/4" copper with the adapters and two more ball valves, is it ok to use copper?

Here is the link from the other question, it has a pic of my drum: http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=162442

I don't see why not. People cook on copper pans.

What is meant by lowering risers? Don't know this term and wonder. After re-reading your post I think you're talking about your intake length? Steve.

I used (4) 3/4" steel pipes pieces 2" long.
I have enough on the outside of the drum for the lock nut and an end cap.
I put a valve on one. Works for me.

That's why I asked what you meant.The 55's that I make use a little over 8' (feet)of two inch tubing. So as you can guess shortening is not my style. Steve.

I only used 1 18" 3/4" intake on the last one I did and it works just fine!

I would lower to 12 or 18". copper should be fine, the intake doesn't get too hot
