Got my drum good and seasoned. Did a test burn Friday night. Temp wasn't the easiest to control. I think mostly due to some air leak issues. I installed a rope seal on the lid and also siliconed the intake vent. I hope to put a butt on it tonight around 12. Dove season comes in tomorrow and I hope to have it done mid morning so I can let it rest a few hours before lunch. Wish me luck!

Darn nice work. Sealing up the leaks makes a big difference. You should be able to kill the fire entirely and save leftover charcoal for later. Now break it in with a fatty!

This really is one of the most impressive UDS builds I've seen. Would love to see some cook pics after you get some meat going.

First cook on the Big Ugly. Two butts, drum held temp well. Only problem was I used royal oak lump and it burned out really quick. I had it shut down on both ends but it still only lasted about 7-8 hours. Friday I did a test burn with Kingsford Bricks and it held 250 for 14+ hours. Anyone else have this problem???

Great looking butt...

Same problem with RO, only use Kingsford Blue bag here and it works.
