A little more practice with my UDS this evening. Cooked up four turkey thighs that I brined for 24 hours and lightly rubbed with a little concoction I made up..... The drum did pretty good at holding around 225*.... I did get a big temperature spike after opening the lid to turn the food, and then of course I over compensated and the temp dropped to 160* for a little while. Seems like closing the intakes before opening the lid is good advice
Tasted great right off the drum. Probably will be even better tomorrow on a sandwich!
