I light the top coals with the burner and wait 10-20 minutes.. They start burning downwards, like a minion method.

why would u want it to burn sideways? PBC/UDS still uses radiant heat.... I would want even heat coming from the basket.

I would also think that the uneven radiant heat would be even more apparent, the wider the drum, as in the 55 gal drum.

My UDS will burn out in 2-3 hours if I light the middle. If I light one side, it burns across the basket. Only way it will work. ��

i dont have a uds, so unsure.. but in the pbc, if only one side is lit, i dont think you would be able to use the unlit side, or if you do it will take longer to cook than the lit side.. its pretty significantly smaller than a 50 gallon drum.

your technique is similar to the one we used in the bandera with the firebasket.. we burned horizontally instead of vertically.

My pbc experience matches this. An even burning fire seems to work best.

For reasons unknown to me, I have been considering a second fire basket, that would be taller and narrower than the one I currently have. Maybe this is why.
