Its been a while, finally got my UDS tidied up and resprayed, although still not keen on the paint but anyway its for cooking not looking at! Bit of a spontaneous smoke today, only decided yesterday that i was going to! And sadly i didn't have any heatbeads etc, so i ordered what i could from Amazon for next day! I know crazy but it was a sudden urge, ill order more beads etc tomorrow. Anyway, got Landman premier briquettes as only thing available for Sunday delivery, and could only get hickory woodchips rather than chunks but needs must! Also got a "reds" rib rub as again all i could find at very short notice! UDS is fired up (bit late but had wait for delivery! lol) Ribs are rubbed and on now, i removed most of the membrane but think a couple small bits remained. Smoker started off too hot and was struggling to lower it without killing it, currently sitting at 220F and dropping with virtually all vents closed, need to open one a bit as dont want it to go out.. Hopefully it wont get too hot again.. Trying the 2-2-1 method from forums. Updates later! Going to be a late dinner !
