Default new UDS build with pron

Thought I would share a few prons of my new UDS. Fired it up Sunday for the game and smoked three slabs of BBR. Turned out great...sorry no pron of the Q !!!
Anyway, thought I would post a few of the build process.
Also had a few questions about the first cook. I had a lot of trouble keeping my temps low. I am using a digital thermo in the center and the thermo on the side at grate level. Even with all ccaps closed and ball valve mostly closed I was running 290-300 the whole time. I have about 22" between bottom of the basket and the top grate. I mixed Kingsford and lump..bout 10-12 lbs and put about 20 lit coals on top to start it up. Spiked as I thought when I took of the lid and never would settle. Could it be that I had too much lump maybe? Maybe should lower the basket some, but I only have about 3" to the bottom of my barrel.
