I completed my UDS except for the final paint job. I broke it in with a 10 Lb. butt. I love this thing!! It took a total of 16 hours to cook the butt and all I had to do was minor tweaks on the ball valve and I shook the basket down to break the ashes up at about 8 hours.

I have a question for more experienced drumhead bretheren. I have a dome lid but I only installed the bolts for the lower rack. I still have room for an upper rack. My question is: Is the second rack more trouble than it is worth? I seldom cook anything low and slow that I don't need to get at sometime during the process. Do you find that removing the top rack to get at the lower is a PITA? Do you need to rotate the racks of meat during the cooking process so that they are done at the same time?
