geo is that a 55 gallon barrel or a 30 gal.? The angle of the pic makes it seem small.

No, thank you for posting. Birds are cheap, but they can also be delicious. The faster they cook, the better the results IMO of course.

I love chix skin, so I'm biased..

Question here: I ended up with a very large charcoal basket 17'' across 6'' high, should I fill the whole damn thing up (20#) and let it die out when I'm done?

I have a removable lid and was going to poke exhaust holes instead of making a stack. Will my coals burn out if I have no way to cover the exhaust holes?

No harm in using a full basket if you light up with the minion method for a slow burn and control your heat with the vents early. Yes, you'll want to cover or close exhaust holes if you want your fuel to extinguish... a sheet (or maybe several sheets) of magnetic strip might just plug your vent holes if you haven't installed nipples you can cap, or whatnot.

Yes and yes. Put as much coal in as you like- you can snuff em out when you're done cooking. However you will need to cover your exhaust vents to snuff out the fire. I personally have a 2" stack on mine with threads so I can use a pipe cap, but I've seen some folks use pipe plugs to close the holes in their lids. Either way you gotta do somthin to cover the vents as`well as close the intake to stop the burn.

IMHO this depends on what type of charcoal you use. Some say the Briq's are like a sponge, and will draw moisture, but lump can be re-used. So in the case of briq I would suggest, and will practice myself from now on trying to either load just enough for the run, and or let it burn out in it's own. I HAVE noticed reusing briq before I read they draw moisture that a basket containing re-used briq acted a little "weird"

I'll differ from the others, I have never had a way to close the vents in my lid, and either lump or briq smother just fine if I just close all the air intakes.

I shut mine down when I'm done cooking...I leave the leftover briq's in the basket and re-use them. Smoking right now, there was about 5lbs or so leftover from my last smoke 2 or 3 weeks ago).

it may depend on where we all live too, and the weather, but when I say it acted weird, if I had to describe it, it actually acted like the UDS was just running on what I dumped in to start it, until the heat dried the briq out that were left in there ?? The temp really dropped off, and I had to shake the basket (by thumping the uds and it's cart) to get the fuel load to light off.

Before starting up the UDS for the first time. Do I need to remove this rubber ring from the inside grip of the lid? It is technically on the outside of the drum once the lid is in place.

Has anyone used the big poppa kit and if so how big of a hole for the sliding vents. Just curious.
