View Full Version : Pork Butts, Baby backs and beef ribs

06-08-2014, 10:24 AM
Well Just finished my UDS build and did my first drum seasoning... Now for my first cook. Doing 2 Butts 14lbs total on the lower grill and on the top grill doing 1 baby back and 2 beef ribs. Using the PitmasterIQ (IQ110) to keep steady temps. Doing it at 275*

I did alot of reading on the UDS builds and am really excited to see how the food comes out. I am coming from a propane (Lowes $150)upright 4 shelf which has worked very good for the last 2 years. We have had some good food but wanted more room to cook a full rack instead of cutting it in half to fit in the smoker and also wanted to try cooking with charcoal just to get a different flavor. We will see how it goes.

Enjoy the PRON!

Looking good. Your UDS looks great. Did you do a build thread? I like a lot of the details on it.

No I didn't do a build thread on it. I probably should have but forgot to take pictures while I was building it. I still need to paint it. That is the normal drum paint on the outside. The inside I had sand blasted. It had the red liner inside.

I am going to be making a cart with wheels and a counter for it that is why there are no wheels on it right now. Just wanted to test it out and make sure it worked good.

Ok so the wife and I were so excited to get the ribs off the UDS and try them we forgot to take pictures. We still have pictures but not of the whole rack. The baby backs were probably the best I have done yet. They were VERY good. Pulled pork was great too. 275* 8 hours total. At 170 IT I put the pork in tins and covered with foil. Pulled them at 205* IT.

Enjoy the PRON.

Looks like you be using the UDS and charcoal over the gasser from now on.

Yep, for myself there was an epiphany of sorts when I easily mastered the drum.
Like whats you got there, enjoy.

Yes I think so... It was so easy and everything came out great! Love the Pitmaster IQ. That thing made it sooo easy. Almost as easy as using an oven.
