I use the Auber for my UDS and it works great. I broke the temp. probe, my fault, and they sent a new one no charge. People say the a UDS does not need a PID but I don't agree, it gives you confidence when you do a long cook overnight and don't have to worry about it so you can get some sleep. I use Royal Oak lump from WalMart with much better results than Kingsford briquettes because the RO does not leave much ash. Also, you don't need to get more than a half dozen started in the chimney before you dump on the unlit ones in the firebox. The Auber will bring it to temp but remember that it is easier to bring up temp. than bring down temp.
