Default Ideas please..

After reading through the 5 million page thread on UDS's I have built one. I want to thank everybody for all the great ideas. Now Im going to have my first cook on it this weekend I was thinking of a fatty or some kind of chicken bacon jalenpeno wrap type thing.... and also something bigger like a brisket or a butt. By the way this will be my first smoke ever. But when I seasoned my UDS I can control temp pretty good. Im just looking for some ideas. And thanks again for all the help!

Do a butt, (really easy and very forgiving), a chuck roast, a fatty or two, (one stuffed one right out of the paper), and some Moinks or ABTs. You won't regret it.

Pork butt and all the stuff you mentioned above .... maybe a spatchcocked bird as well. Hard to beat a butt or bird for the first smoke. My $.02. Happy smoking!

Go big.......do a brisket. Not that hard to do, just needs a bit more time. You could do one of each! Break that drum in BIG!!

+1 for pork butt - so very forgiving, all you need for success is a temperature probe for the roast. Getting better is for future smokes (as "better" is always in the future!).

Good luck!

No need for a probe! An ABT is an atomic buffalo turd. Basically a jalapeno (doesn't have to be though, use a poblano, habanero etc if you wish) stuffed with cheese (usually cream cheese), and wrapped in bacon. You can add other things to the cheese filling to suit your taste. When the bacon is done, it is done.

Do a Beer Can Chicken so you have something to nibble on while your butt cooks.

Ok next question, I think it will be some ABTs a fatty and a butt, now how many pounds of briquettes should I use and how much wood, I only have some chunks of hickory. By the way the basket is about 16" in dia. also should I keep it about 220-230 for the whole time if i can?

Fill the basket up, or 10 - 15 pounds. You can shut down the drum to snuff out the fire when the cook is done. You'd rather have too much than too little. Use 2 or 3 fist sized pieces of dry seasoned wood. Do not soak in water. How long is the probe on your pit thermometer? If short, keep temps around 210* If the probe goes to the center of the drum, 230* - 250* should work out just fine.

Butt or Chicken are the easiest.
