I think the faucet valve is for washing out the barrel without having to tip it over. Air control is handled by the sliders, those rectangular vents have slider doors, that can be used to tailor air flow. Can you tell I have looked at these before?

I think the weekend after the Superbowl it is about time that I build my UDS. That is an awesome build.

Nicely done!

I think it's time to modify my UDS slightly so I can hang meat. I already have 1/2" rebars laying around. I'll bend a set of stainless steel skewers into hooks.
Instead of poking holes into the drum itself for the rebars I have a separate 3" tall ring that fits perfectly between the drum and the dome lid which will become the hanger assembly.

Please let us know how those slider vents control air flow. I like the looks of them but wonder how much they might leak in comparison to ball valves. Been drooling for a while over the BPS-UDS kit.

The slider vents control air flow just fine. There might be a slight amount of leak, but not enough to make a difference. I have no problem shutting the fire down when I close them. Temps are very stable.

With those hanger rods, it should be called "Big Pimp'n Smoker"

I also really like that gravy spout at the bottom.

When new, slider vents seem like they may leak air but once they accumulate a nice thin layer of gunk they're pretty air tight.
