I finished my UDS yesterday about 1pm. I coated the inside with oil and put about 5lbs of charcoal in along with a couple of hickory sticks about the size of a forearm to season it properly. I must say I am AMAZED at how well the UDS holds heat and is able to maintain a temp of 220F. It finally started dropping off last night about 8:30pm, but it was a sloooooow decline in temp. I went ahead and closed the ball valve and smothered it out still have some descent sticks of hickory to reuse. I cant wait till Thursday when I'm off to fire this bad boy up. My only regret is that I didn't build one sooner. If its not to dark out I'll take pics and post.
