that's conducting whatever limited air it has from the inside of the barrel, which is constricted. If you conduct it from the outside of the barrel, you have way more control. Controlling air flow+fuel equals heat.

I'm still kind of lost. It is conducting air from outside the barrel through the intakes. If it wasn't, the fire would go out.

What I have described and what he has built is a pretty standard UDS design. And I can say that it works exceedingly well on my 2 drums for going on almost 10 years now and many other UDSs I am sure. Sometimes it works a bit too well. They are not very forgiving if the temps get away from you.

haha, no big deal --- you guys have your ideas, I have mine. I'd get that thing off the ground and draw air from the bottom.

Either way, No big whoop!

Good news and bad news. Good news is temp came up to 250 and held, opened everything back up to make sure I could get it to 350 for chicken and turkey. Did excellent. Bad news is I never made it to menards for a grill grate. Looks like I wonít get to use it tomorrow. Have to use ole reliable tomorrow for Xmas dinner. Thanks again for all the advice. You guys havenít let me down yet.

Have a wonderful Christmas

Interesting. Never seen a UDS that way. But it makes sense. Just more difficult to adjust I suppose. Let me ponder that..Hmmm....

Hunsaker makes a drum smoker that is setup that way. Vents on the bottom with a slider to adjust.



I think BBQGoddes has one.

Both ways work but one is much easier for the backyard bbqer to build at home.

What was the ambient temperature? it is very difficult to get the temperature up much higher in cold winter, unless you really insulate it well.

I am assuming the thing is set outdoors because it is a very good CO generator.
