Little new here but this is my 2nd UDS Ive built.
For some reason I am have an issue getting my uds up to temp
and having issue with is smoking.
I have 2 inlet holes and 4 exhaust holes.
The inlet holes I do believe are 1/2" and the exhust is 3/4" opening
My coal basket is about 14" around and 12" high.
I filled my basket with kingsford charcoal and put around 10 pieces of wood scattered through out the whole basket.
Started the coals by heating up 5 pieces with a weed burner and dropping them on top.
With both inlet holes fully open it is only getting up to like 115*. I decided to drill a quick 3rd hole in the bottom and it only still got up 180* and with minimal smoke.
Any ideas here?
Im attaching pictures to this post as well.
You'll notice one picture of alot of smoke coming from it, I was manly just burning wood inside of it to cure it slightly. No cooking.
And you'll notice another picture with meat inside of it and the only reason there was smoke is cause I left the lip half open.
