I think it could go as high as $50 at that rate... A drum is 23 square feet on the inside and 23 square feet on the outside, including the lid. I think a half hour is a bit optimistic for both sides of the drum...

I was waiting to see how my Pork but came out before I made my final decision. This change is purely personal preference. I am going to add another grate right above the charcoal box and add a water pan.

Are you going to install some sort of fill spout so you can fill it when it gets low. On a long cook you could run out of water and then you would have a very pronounced burnt metal pan smell. Also I would think you will have to play with your vents a little to compensate for the additional heating and cooling effect of the water.

Just my thoughts.

Anyone use a heat diffuser in a UDS? If so, what do you use?

No, I was just farking with you farkers to see if I would get dog piled. Everything came out fine. It took a little while to get use to controlling the heat with a full grill, but I was able to keep a solid 245 to 250 during the whole cook. Got better than a twelve hour burn out of a full basket It burned longer but I did not stay up to see when it finally died out. Overall very pleased with it. The food was great.

I use a terracotta pot base wrapped in aluminum foil but more for catching grease then diffusing heat.

How big is the terracotta pot base and how is it mounted.

Has it ever burned? Is terracotta very heat resistant? Thanks for your help.

One of the reasons I'd like a diffuser is because I've heard that their are frequent big flare ups with a UDS when you try to get your food out. I'm thinking a diffuser can help give me more time getting the food in and out, or when checking for temps.

Thanks!

I cooked on my UDS yesterday in the wind. I just shut down my air intakes before opening. I did what I needed to do as quickly as possible put the lid back on and opened the intakes back up to get it to proper temps.
