8 pound of Cowboy lump, and propane hand torch, and got a few chunks glowing.

As it got to 175, put one nipple cap on, 200 the second, and it settled at 220.

Inner thermometer reads 275, two much difference. Looks like I will calibrate them.

Turned ball valve closed a bit, and the temp (inside) has settled to 250.

All I can say is WOW, and thanks to all the posters in the Mega UDS thread.

Pictures sometime this weekend.

Ah, the first UDS burn. For some reason, the first dry run of a new cooker is always fun. Congrats. You are going to be cooking some great food in that drum.

I took my new viking themed UDS for its first burn today with a brisket flat, turned out great I think.
