I only added wood at the begining. For the pork I used 2 chuncks of hickory wood, and for the chicken I only used 1 1/2 cups of apple wood chips. Both worked well.

mix in wood chunks amongst the coals. distributed evenly, it should smoke as long as there's fire, which will be a while. I have coals left over after 10-12 lbs for 10 hrs.

My wife knows I'm crazy, she saw me reading this thread and decided the UDS was too ugly and that I needed a BGE. That worked for me.

The drum I have is painted on the inside not really a "Liner"! Can Just put a basket of charcoal in it and burn it out that way ? Its been very very dry Here in the Dallas area and I don't feel comfortable loading a bunch of junk wood in my UDS and catching something on fire !!

liners are always painted on. There is a ton of useful info on how to burn them out. You can search the thread or do as I did and read the entire thread and you will find that you know everything you need to know about building a big and maybe beautiful UDS!!! As for burning out the liner in Texas....you may have to wait until the dry spell is over. I did mine with a weed burner.

Do any of you turn your meat or leave it like it is? I am sure this has been covered, but I get a sensory overload after 500+ pages.

Default mounting the thermometer to the UDS

I remember seeing a post somewhere amongst the 500+ pages where someone used an attachment that would allow you to push and pull the thermometer out of the smoker. Where can I buy one and what is it called. I feel stupid, hopefully someone knows what I'm talking about.
Thanks!

I just have a bolt that I drilled a 5/32" hole down the middle of. A cheap Wal-Mart thermo slides in and out of that- is that what you mean?

There are several ways you can do this. I used a brass nipple and cap. See posting #8311

Default chimney

quesiton about the exhaust (chimney) ports... i know some people just drill 1/2" holes evenly spaced in the lid.. but my lid already has the bung hole so i was just going to thread a short pipe into it.. also i like how it looks..

question is though.. when people do this.. are they just using the black plumbing pipe used same as used the intake ports?.. i would be wanting something that woudl thread into the existing bung hole.

thanks,

Very cool setup. I wish I could find performer/older platinum carts like that
