Don't get me wrong... my UDS is spot on as far as I can tell where the therm is.... 210 when I set it at 8:30, 208 when went to bed, 207 when I woke up at 4, cranked it to 230.... near that range at 8 in the am.
Still holding now at 170-180 with the briskey in it.
So the only reason I was up was because Phil said it would be ready. It wasn't ... I had it set that low because I was worried about temp versus being over the fire, so.... it wasn't ready, but I am damn sure glad I think I wrapped it as it may have dried a bit. I need a stack.
