Hi all. I have just recently completed my mini UDS build (will post pics when I transfer from phone as they will not post from there for some reason).
Any way, I built it from a 15 gallon barrel(no liner, no need to do an extensive burn), lid and grate from a small char-griller grill I had at home and for the charcoal basket, I used a grill wok that I put bolts through to give a 2" lift off the bottom.
The trouble I am having is that I cannot get the temp over 190*. The ball vale is a 1/2'" diameter and I am thinking I may need to either put on another or replace with a larger one.
Any help is appreciated
