Id say just go 350 or so the whole cook. In that case it would take a little little over an hour and a half.

Well an oven finish will have to work. You could always add more intake /exhaust to the drum to make it more versatile

You could start with more lit coal to achieve higher temps too. I've run 325+ degrees in snow with 4 intakes

How much lit do you start with. More coals =more heat.

I am not a UDS man, but I think you will want to pull them from the smoker about 10-15 degrees shy of final target temp if you are going directly from there to a 500 degree oven.

Yep more coals to start off with will do the trick. In the summer I light about 12 burquets coals and the max temp I got was around 325. Just did a test run in -26c weather yesterday with about 25-30 burquets coals and got 425 easily.
My UDS has 3 x 3/4" inlets and one 2" exhaust

I have three 1" intakes and a 2" exhaust and I have no trouble with temps getting up nor down. Maybe the problem could be in the basket? Fuel getting choked maybe?
