Fired up my UDS yesterday afternoon at 2PM. Had 2 large CAB briskets. I used my spicewine charcoal rack from my bandera. Filled it with kingsford and 1 small log of oak.

Maintained about 210 for 14 hours. Pulled the briskets off at 4 AM.

I put the cover back on and shut down the vents. At 2PM today, I still had hot coals.

This was one of my best and consistent cooks on my UDS. When I made mine, I made a lot of mistakes drilling the holes for my grates. This time I made sure I plugged all those holes with foil.

I had also drilled 4 holes at the bottom for ventiliation. I kept those plugged almost the entire time.

I am using my weber kettle lid which I highly recommend for your UDS.

Well its done...
 
I guess? Is that the epitome of Ugly! Am not sure if it has to have a vent at the top?

Nice n' ugly! Gotta love it!

I took 2 of my drums and 2 WSM's to a Competition cooking class this past weekend. I lent one of the Webers to another team and finished two other teams briskets and butts in my drums. They had been fighting thier little loaner offsets and ECB's to keep their temps stable all day, it was very frustrating for them, I hope they don't give up Q'n after that day!

We got a First Place finish for our Chicken, done spatchcocked on the drum and cut up for presentation, won the "Friendliest Booth" title and my son won a WSM as a door prize! It was fun because everyone had to come by and check out the UDS's!

I hope I raised the awareness!

That is a no-no in a KCBS competition!

Question, I am gonna sell the UDS I made for the parts in it to a guy from the CBBQA. I bought 5#'s of charcoal today, am gonna start it tomorrow morning. Want to be able to give him some advice on how to tune the temps. How long a burn should I be able to get from 5lbs.?

jgh1204 08-14-2007 10:12 PM

About 6 to 10 hours, depending on how hot you run.

I know, it was non KCBS and it was a cooking class and Chicken and Ribs comp that benefitted a local charity, and a LOT of first time cookers attended, finished up some brisket and butts for some, mine were done and coolered, and like I said they were getting pretty frustrated, besides, the drums were hummin'!

I'll get @ 6 hours on a full Weber chimney of briqs in my small charcoal ring, I read somewhere that it holds @ 6 lbs.
