WOW!!! This is one crazy thread. This thread alone, though I didnt read the entire thread, has helped me to better understand the UDS concept and all I needed to know about it. You guys are so much more than informative in all the best ways to not only build, but effectively use and cook a fabulous range of meats. My UDS is coming home this saturday. I didnt make it, but I will in fact upgrade it to best suit my likes. And I am sure if I have any problems, I simply need only to span this encyclopedia of knowledge in this thread.
