I have a question on placement of air intakes. I'm currently building my UDS using a single draft door measuring approx 3" x 5" at the bottom which slides over three 3/4" intake holes. Very simple.
I see most all UDS builds using valves and caps, whether 3 or 4, spaced equally apart around the drums. How important is this? Is it really that important to have incoming air from all directions within the drum for an even burn when all the valves and caps are open? You'll ultimately end up controlling temp with just one 3/4" intake anyway so my question is does it really matter? Thanks!
