Better for what? I was just stating the temp I get with only the valve open. My UDS gets used from 180* for jerky and bacon to 400* on chicken. To answer your assumption, I smoke at around 275* for ribs and butts. The biggest point here is the UDS is extremely variable and best used that way. Don't paint yourself in a corner. Experimentation is expected. Pugi
