I finished my UDS yesterday about 1pm. I coated the inside with oil and put about 5lbs of charcoal in along with a couple of hickory sticks about the size of a forearm to season it properly. I must say I am AMAZED at how well the UDS holds heat and is able to maintain a temp of 220F. It finally started dropping off last night about 8:30pm, but it was a sloooooow decline in temp. I went ahead and closed the ball valve and smothered it out still have some descent sticks of hickory to reuse. I cant wait till Thursday when I'm off to fire this bad boy up. My only regret is that I didn't build one sooner. If its not to dark out I'll take pics and post.

Charcoal is all I can find in my area, unless I travel 50+ miles then I can find lump, which I will prolly get some next time I'm "in the city". The good thing however is I live in the country so I have an endless supply of wood to smoke with, i.e. hickory, pecan, apple etc.

So use all wood. Using all wood in a UDS smoker means a little more fire tending and a way of adding chunks now and then.

Hadn't thought about that. Would you just open all vents and stack some logs in there and get a good fire going, then cap it off and smother the fire and bring temps to where they need to be?

No, I wouldn't do that. A small hot fire and just add a chunk or 2 now and then. I got a 6" side door for that.

I don't have a side door mod on mine but I don't think it would hurt to pull the grate out and drop a stick or 2 1/2 way through the cook.

If your primary fuel is going to be wood, you'll want a side door. The easiest way is to make plunge cuts with a grinder or circular saw equipped with a cut-off blade for metal.

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=33727 (scroll down)
I'll try to make a PowerPoint Presentation like Pat did.

PS: I too think the UDS subject needss its own discussion area and a place for resources in the files section. Any moderators listening?

PS: The reason is you'll get an instant flare-up once the excess air hit the fire (like when you lift the lid off).

I actually had a flashback of sorts in mine this weekend...cooking pork loin @ 350*. Nothing major, but the trashcan did fill with a blueish/orange swirl all the way to the top. I added fresh lump over red coals, so I thinkin' that was the difference maker...pretty cool lookin' if nothing else.
