I am use to stick burning and relatively new to the UDS. I was intrigued by the long burn times.

I know a lot of people use the minion method with briquettes but if that is the flavor youíre shooting for, not my cup of tea.

Spank me.

This may be a stupid question..
did you burn out the drum?
I too doubt very much that it was the RO, but the wood.
Look for a bag of Hickory chunks and try that before you write
it off to the RO.

I would think about burning the drum... There may be something there that wasn't removed during the steam cleaning....
