UDS Progress ( Temp Probe Set-Up )

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Should be ready for some Q this weekend. icon_smile.gif

Here is my temp probe set-up so that I can use a 12 inch probe or swap out for a digital 2 probe Maverick down the road.

Looks good, I have the same sort of setup, you will notice that the temps where the thermo is located can be 10-20* different than at grate level, also the temps at the outside of the barrel will vary also. Test with a digital also so you know how the drum really runs.

Looks good that should work. You are going to love smoking on that baby!

Hmmm, I didn't know that they could vary that much over an inch. Good to know! I know each drum is different but on yours are you seeing higher or lower temps at grate level compared to where my probe is?

I think it varies as the fire works its way around the charcoal basket.

Don't try to measure it in too many places at the same time or worry too much about the variation. You'll just get frustrated. biggrin.gif Pick a spot to measure, call it the control point and smoke on. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Everything looks good so far, I see that your drum is still raw. Make sure you burn it in well before a great smoke job. biggrin.gif
