Default R2D2 UDS? Jalapeno UDS?

Well, it was a "just because" thing...The UDS was working great.
N8man "rednecked" smoker was the inspiration. Wife said it looks like a ripe Jalapeno! My son said its a tank w/the guns pointing the wrong way!
Looks like motleys!

I did a practice burn tonite, It just about killed me to not have any food in it! The temps are easy to maintain! I used the same 1/4 inch pipe nipples, a 1/4-3/4 inch elbow, 46 inch 3/4 inch pipe,.. with one 3/4 in.- 1/4 in. elbow, to fit a ball valve I already had. (I'm cheap!) the other a reg. 3/4 in. elbow. 2 3/4 in. pipe nipples on bottom.
7:15 start fire
7:30 275*
7:45 275*
8:00 275* all vents closed, except ball valve
8:30 245 ball joint 1/4 open
9:00 225 open other 3/4 nipple
9:45 224
going to bed!

Whatcha think? I can take it!
My wife thinks I'm crazy, but loves the que!
