Well, I'll be happy when I get my UDS together and running. It worked alright but offsets are a lot of work no matter how you use them. I was having to rotate the turkey a lot and even had to flip it over because the top was cooking faster than the bottom. It was a real struggle to keep the temp anything close to consistent. Adding a modest amount of fuel would drive the temp up 100 degrees and would drop steadily making it necessary to open the lid way too often to add fuel. Also, the cooking chamber bottom is less curved than the fire box bottom leaving less room for ashes. This idea would probably be good for chicken halves or turkey breasts but is too troublesome with a whole turkey.
