I am new to UDS's and I was wandering if you can mop in a UDS. I usually use a offset smoker that I built and I mop the meat after 4 hours of smoking and I was just wandering if I can do that with my UDS.
Good advice.. Also, be sure to close your intake before you open the lid. It won't solve your temp rise problem but it will hinder a jet of air getting to your coals.The UDS has become my primary smoker over the gasser. As the other have said, yes, you can spritz and/or mop just have everything prepared and hit it quickly and get the lid back on. After a few smokes you'll get a better feel for how your particular setup reacts with the rush of fresh air to the coals and how it responds after being closed back up. The temp may spike initially after putting the lid back on, but try not to make any intake adjustments initially to see if it settles back down. Give it a good 15 minutes before you start to make intake adjustments.
