Great idea... honestly I've never put my hand above the firebox of my UDS running at 250. I've only ever felt hot coals in an open grilling type situation where the goal is to get em screaming hot>

Rifraf, please do this and report your results! With the PBC burning at its default temp of around 275, the coals are much more subdued and maybe the heat isn't as hot as we think it is. Later on in the cook it will probably be even cooler with all the drippings
