Last week-end I put the finishing touches on my UDS project. The week-end before I seasoned it with vegtable oil. I got the temps up around 550F for a while and then back down to around 250F. I wanted to bake the high temp paint on. I think air flow is going to work well. I plan on smoking a couple of racks of Pork Spares this week-end to see how she performs. I blogged the whole build process (most of it anyway) here: www.uglydrumsmoker.blogspot.com -=- Jerry -=- .
