Default Hangin some wings on UDS

Fired up the UDS and hung a few wings for combo dinner and save some for this weekend's camping trip.
Half with DP Raging River and half with a poultry blend. Two hours at about 275 on the drum and we hit 191.
Strange thing was that almost all the wings were right side wings? All our of the same package (Costco) and only about 5 our of 30 wings were lefties. Guess that's about average anyway.
Very tasty but would like skin a little more crispy.
Was pleased with the hanging bars. Put them in when I built the drum and this is the first time I've really used them other than arm-pit holders for beer can turkey.

Nice looking wings you've got there. One question though off subject, what does the lid of your UDS look like? I'm looking for ideas on lid design on the UDS I'm making.

I use a Weber lid that I found on a dog walk to finish the UDS.

They're just hanging. I slit the skin between the forearm and upper arm (bicep) to get a better hang. And the foil around the bars is rough and helps hold them.

That was the thought when I put the hanging bars in the UDS but I haven't done it yet. I'd like to do some hanging meats but will have to learn.

I a little afraid of losing the meat into the bottom of the drum!

Any ideas or thoughts?

Default UDS is still alive!!

After shutting down the UDS last night at about 7:00pm I went out this morning to put it away and it was still burning and at 150* !

Go figure .

I checked all the openings and all closed up. Where is the air coming from?

If your worried about meat going to the bottom use your grate as a backstop.

I also like the skin on my wings a little crispy, so I smoke them at about 325 - 350.

Nice looking wings!

Same here, and I love doing wings on the smoker. Do you cook them at 325+ for the entire time? Or, do you just crank it up at the end? or beginning?

Here it is :



Those are some fine looking wings, BTW. I've decided to mod my existing UDS and get it exactly right before I build a second one. The hanging bars are a nice touch.

I'm thinking from the intake(s).

Those look good and I like the hanging bars idea, those would be handy.

Okay...you got me! It's still a Weber Kettle. Nice move!
