And GO CARDS!!!
(I am trying to upload pictures of my set-up for those visual thinkers)
I am going to try that next time I do a cook, just don't know when it will be. Just putting the question out there to see if any others have had a similar problem or have any suggestions
I think I got the picture problem sorted out, here's my UDS
Uncap one of the other nipples and buy another ball valve...........make sure it is a full bore ball valve , some ball valves even though they are a 1'' valve a lot of them have a small 3/8'' to 1/2'' orifice , find one with a full bore orifice.
After you get the new valve try running one low without a riser run it wide open , then you can bring up and control temps by adjusting the B.V. with the riser.
This is what I had to do before I bought my PartyQ , with makes my UDS 100% set it and forget it
for up to 18 hours depending on the charcoal basket size.
I run only two intake vents, each with a 3/4" ball valve. Wide open on both I get 275-300 depending on ambient temperatures. With each half closed I get approx 225. I've thought about adding a third to allow higher temps but so far I haven't needed to.
