I actually use four 3/4" intake nipple on mine. I would use a stepbit and increase to what worked before. Anyways, good luck with your cook tonight.

That may be the key!! What I did was take two four inch nipples (that is what i had) and cut them in half. They are longer than the close nipples I have used in the past.


At any rate the battle is about to begin.....

I have a 12 pounder, I am going to figure approx 1 hour 15 minutes per lb. so if she goes on around 2:30 should be ready to pull around 5:30-6:00 tomorrow evening. Let it rest in a cooler for an hour and chow down.

I wonder what the people at this camp ground are going to think in an hour or so if they have their windows open.

If your using a weed burner to get it going give a couple of extra squeezes of the turbo handle to let them know who's the boss!

Oh I gotta get one of those. I could hook it inline to the camper. 2 30 lb bottles could provide loads of fun!!

I'm shocked. As long as you have beem in the UDS game and you don't have one of these guilty pleasures? Nothing like the roar of a man and his weedburner.

I was always afraid I would knock over my beer swinging it around.

When you talking about nipples are you talking about length or Diameter??

Humidity plays a huge part in how that drum will run....
If someone can explain that, it would be great!!

Minimum 3/4" nipples for intakes. Drum law.

I haven't tweeked my nipples yet as she is cooking a brisket at the moment. I do think I will change at least one to a 3/4 at some point. The wind picked up this morning and the temp did jump for a few minutes, Thanks to the alarm on the receiver I got in a decent cat nap. For now I think it is about strategic placement in regard to the breeze. With a little adjustment (breeze related) she is holding at 229-230.

Most of what I saw said use 3/4 close nipples so that is what I did. I have used lump in mine and it works fine up to about 8- 10 hours. Then I have to tweak the fire.
A 3/4 pipe nipple fits a 1" hole in the drum. 1/2" is a bit small I would think.
I agree, on the length. The longer the pipe, the slower flow you will get for any fluid including air.

smooookin, the first UDS I built I used 4" pipe nipples thinking the oxygen coming closer to the middle of the basket would spread outward better. Wrongo. Had to shake the drum too often so changed to 1 inchers all around and that really made for a more even burn. You will dial it in just like you have in the past.

I will make a couple of changes ( thanks to this thread ) and she will be just fine. This is the drum that I usually put my 3/4 extension on. Since I am sure there are a few air leaks with it on I have no problem. It is just when using the lid that she requires more attention than normal.

Of course right now, I am setting in El Paso at the camp ground in a farkin thunderstorm watching the temps fall. Right now there is a little too mush lightening to roll out the awning and move the barrel. If nothing else maybe we will get some more hail.
