Did my first cook on the UDS today (7.5 lb flat) Stated with the basket about 2/3 full with a combo of Kingsford Comp. charcoal, cowboy lump, cherry and pecan wood. With the ball valve wide open, it maintained a temp of 225*, with a cap opened it went to 275*. At the 7 hr mark, the probe slid in and out like butta with the internal temp reading 205*. Foiled and rested for 30 minutes and then sliced! Came out great very tender and moist. By the way cooked it with the fat cap up.
At the 12 hr mark I saw that the charcoal was still hot and decided to open all intakes to see how high she'd go. At 350* I closed it up to save whatever charcoal was left. I gotta image that it coulda went for another 3 hrs or so
Wondering why the smoke ring was so thin?
