I got my drum all seasoned yesterday/today. As I have never cooked on a UDS, I did a dry run using some hickory chunks and a 10lb bag of Royal Oak lump. After 18 hours, I noticed the temps dropped from 225-230 to 195-200. Opened her up and gave the coal basket a good shake and now I'm back in business. I still had 1/3-1/2 the lump left in the box. These things are sweet.
Hopefully I'll have my first UDS pron later this week.
