I ran er upta 400 fer a bit, then throtteled back ta 250, after 8 hours was it had dropped ta 200, gave er a shake ta knock the ash offin the coals an climbed right back ta 225. At that point I wen't ta bed. I'm guessin it's gonna hold temps perty well.

Looks good but will have to agree with DJ that thang is too purty to be a UDS. Let us call it a PDS (Purty Drum Smoker). It even got wheels. Whut a deal.

Yeppers pile them firebricks as high as they will go along the sides too. The mo the merrier. My old snnp would hold 22 and talk about helping a cooking device..will say it was helpful. Now it will sink in the mud when it rains. Course you got wheels on that fancy smancy deal you got. Prob just take a wrecker to get that outta the mud hole..or have yourself a few pickle buckets and load it up with bricks when you need to move it. Or if etc. I carried several pickle buckets full of firebricks in the back of the pickup wherever I went back in the good old days. Should work.
