    As i still cannot download my pic's, my UDS is completed and seasoning as we speak!!
    Put 5# Rancher in my charcoal basket from my off-set and a 1/2 chimney of lit with some Mesquite about 1:30.
    1 cap open and my ball valve 1/4 open and settled in at 235*.......5 HOURS AGO!!!
    I am totally amazed at how these thing's run!! Lifted the lid to take a peak and have only burned about 1/2 of that charcoal, temp ran up to 270 from the blast of air and settled right back down to 230ish without touching a thing!! [​IMG]
    Will be breaking it in this weekend with something, now to get some more part's for that other barrell!! [​IMG]
