Last weekend I tested a couple of new products; Butcher BBQ Brisket Injection and An Auber UDS Temperature Controller. This is the thread for anyone interested.
Well the Auber was defective. I was bummed but these things happen. I have an Auber controller for my Electric that I use to great success for sausage, where I can set 6 stages and ramp up the temp. So I have faith in the company. I called Monday morning and by noon had an email stating that a replacement controller was on the way and a prepaid label was in there for returning the old one. Cool.
It got here Thursday. So like I do every weekend I am smoking some meat and hoping to get a good test and review in ernest this time for the Auber.
For those interested it is the SYL-1615SYS-10CFM and is $144 right now. It is simple and is just a probe, a fan and a basic controller to set a temp and hold a temp.
So got my UDS prepped last night and rubbed the ribs first thing this am
So here are the other "new" products tested today. First time doing lump in the UDS. RO Lump to be exact. Lit it with 12 Stubbs briquettes:
Haven't used the hanging rack yet either. So what the hay.
These Baby Backs are just barely touching my deflector/drip pan. We'll see how this works out. I have plenty of clearance from the coal basket so no problems hanging just about anything sans deflector pan. I "designed" the UDS for using the hanging rack without a deflector/drip pan, a la my PBC. But I am giving this technique a shot today.
I won't string this thread out over the whole day. I post end results this afternoon. Sometimes it is just easier to break it up into 2 posts.
BTW, the Auber is working flawlessly. It has been within 1* on either side of 250* for the first hour. At least I have not been able to catch it off anymore than that. I am gonna tighten my Maverick settings to within 5 degrees over and under to see if it sets it off.
