I'm still a newbie with the uds but I've built two. Every smoke I've done has been fairly standard. I open one ball valve, the exhaust, and put 12 grey briquettes on top of the charcoal. Within hour or so I'm good to go at 225-300. Mine holds really good until I get a lot of drippings on the fire and I have to adjust down a little. Sometimes you have to give it a kick to loosen the ash. One thing to watch out for is air leakage around the top, I had to tie a wood stove rope around the top of mine where the lid meets the barrel.
