    Cool UDS, but it's not at all ugly. The pulled pork looks great.

    What part of Austin? We're in Great Hills, and I thought I smelled some good smoking this past weekend. might have been my ham. [​IMG]

    We are in the area between Onion Creek and Bluff Springs.

    Any pictures of the ham?! I've always baked my ham, but now I am itching to smoke one.

    Yep, just haven't posted them....yet. It was my first, and I used a pre-cooked spiral sliced. I make my own glaze with Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum and dark brown sugar. It was delicious and fed a large crowd. Only a little was left for next day sammies.

    Thanks for the kinda response guys. I did some pork ribs with the 3-2-1 method yesterday and they turned out awesome. Need a knife to cut your ribs? Not at my house! Finger licking good..

    That is some really great data. I have heard over and over how the UDS keeps the temp rock solid all day without any fidgeting, but until your post, I have not seen any real data to support that.

    Looks like the temp rises and drops, and you do have to fidget with the valves and stuff like other smoker types.

    If you are interested in running more experiments, you might also indicate how many times you opened the lid and stirred the charcoal, also what effect just opening the lid and not stirring the charcoal has.
