Hi this is my first post I've been lurking for a couple weeks. I just completed my first smoke on my Uds and I have a question about my intakes. I have a Weber lid on top and 3 3/4" intakes and one 1" intake. With all the intakes open I was able to maintain 325 but just barely. I feel like I should have been running hotter with them all open. For the 3/4" intakes I used 4" sections of pipe 3" above the bottom of the barrel and just set the fire basket on the inlets. Maybe this is the problem? I had the exhaust wide open and like around 15 briquettes lit and placed on the basket of unlit briquettes. The thermometer was placed on the grate. Thanks for your help this place is a great resource.
