Thumbs up First UDS

Thanks to the many posters on this site both good and bad......

I have been reading and working on my first UDS for the last several days and have made it through 270 pages.

The best thing is that I smoked a "Fatty" last night during the seasoning process, oh and it was great at breakfast this morning with hot biscuits.

The build is pretty much the basic build that I have been reading about on the past 270 pages. Starting with 8 pounds of Kingsford in the basket and adding 12 lit coals from a chimney it is up to 250 degrees in ten minutes. There was no problem holding this temperature for nine hours and using only 4.5 pounds of charcoal.

This thing is GREAT, I have been using a New Braunfels "Longhorn Deluxe" for several years and this thing is so much easier to keep the temperature stable and uses very little fuel. With only a $40 investment what can I say, it's GREAT.

I am a UDS believer now.......

Haven't figured out the how to post pictures yet.........
