any thoughts on this?
If you're saying that the pork chops got done fast...yes they will. Thinner cuts of meat will not take long at all. With pork chops I like reverse searing, i'll slow cook them to temp and then give them a quick hot sear. I'm lucky my drum has an adjustable charcoal basket so i'll lift that up and sear or sometimes i'll sear them in a black iron pan with a little oil. Either way I don't take the chops much past 150 at the most.

Sometimes i'll give them a breading and sear first then slow cook them to temp.

Welcome to the UDS community! They're versatile and very low maintenance. One tip from me; Since you have the weber kettle lid, you could put a second grate right at the top, or close to it. If you ever decide to fill that sucker up, you'll still have plenty of room under the dome. Also, you can put some foil or a foil pan on the lower rack if you ever felt the need for a diffuser. I do that for my ribs.

Again I can show you a pic sometime but I had this old pizza pan so I drilled some 1/2 to 3/4 " holes in it and put it in on a rack that's about 6 or so inches above the basket. Its worked out well when I do use it which isn't often but it allows the heat to diffuse but still allows drippings to reach the coals. Keith

I think I might need a diffuser sometimes.

Might make one.
