It's kind of hard for me to judge... I would like to have some type of pipe to help with the flow ventilation.
It was a crappy day to BBQ as the weather was very humid and raining off and on. I found myself at first removing and replacing caps on the pipe nipples to adjust the temperature. I will probably add another valve for fine tuning the temp.
Once the rain quit and the wind died down, it stayed rock solid temperature wise.
I just wished I would have taken the ribs off sooner as the backs of the ribs were a little crispy as well as one of the racks being a tad bit on the dry side.
Seeing how this was my first UDS cook, the tips and tricks from this forum were invaluable. Now...it's just gonna take practice...practice..practice..
