I made some mods to my UDS and had to cook something on it! So, why not a brisket? I added an intake, and shortened the original(it was higher than the exhaust and was reversing function depending on wind direction? I also decided to try a pie plate heat diffuser, not sure how well it will work, but we shall see. I've had it on for about 6 hrs, and seems to be going fine! The extra intake seems to give a little more control on heat.
