    Nothing special thread.. I added another vent to my UDS and widened two of the others. I wanted to get a little higher temps... and I can get them now... Now have two 3/4 vents with ball valves, and 2 1" holes with caps... anyways.. did some simple chicken thighs just incase temps raised too much... I figured I couldnt hurt the thighs that bad>:) 

    half chimney getting toasty

    figured Id try the amnps mod... see how it handles on a hot smoke on the UDS.. great so far!

    Chicken thighs.. typical q rub... extra red pepper.. 

    all lit up.... getting up to temp

    325* .. about what I was wanting... Love it :)P

    about an hour in.. flipped over, opened up the vents.. it sky rocketed to 400 quickly.. I removed the lid and have 1 foot flames giving a nice sear to the skin... yyumm yummm..

    Out and rested about 30 mins.. 

    this or JackNtheCrack... this was much better... .

    thanks. sorry to waste some space.. but a few where asking about the mods...they went well. (maybe I should have posted this is the UDS F) anyways... 

    Have a good night...

      Thighs are cheap enough to play with and try something different. If it isn't great, you still get to eat good smoked meat!
