Default Maiden voyage with my UDS and my shelf attacment

So I had my maiden voyage smoking a chuckie, came out great! My only issue was my thermometer I was using was not accurate, so when I thought something was wrong, I checked with a probe thermometer and found out it was 120 decrees off! So I took the chuck off, closed the intakes down, let it cool, then added the roast back on when I was at 260. It rolled at 255 the rest of the cook with one valve open.

My UDS without the shelf on it.

This is with the shelf on, which is just 2 brackets behind that act as clips and fit through the metal carrying handle.

This is a closeup of the brackets and the handle

This is the basket loaded up with some kingsford and a few chunks of applewood

And the chuckie rubbed down on a clean grate

Sorry no post smoke pron, was drinking over my neighbors, and everytime I came back to tend to the cook, my phone was being used to play pandora, so I couldn't snap any pics later. Came out great though, and will be doing whole ribeye next!

Nice drum! Let that be a warning to the brethren- always calibrate a new thermo before trusting it. Boiling water (212 F) works well.
I'm very intelligent, but I mask it by doing stupid stuff.

Thanks! Our town colors are blue and white. I wanted something just to look a bit different, it is high temp header pain rated to 2000 deg, so it should hold fine.
