Well thought it would be better to go big on the basket. It gets cold up here in Canada and the UDS might need some extra fuel!

Good to know Max. Ive got 3 briskets and a whole shoulder to cook. Using a vertical cabinet style from Wallyworld right now, hoping the UDS is a big step up!

Let me tell you it is. I have been using mine now for about 2 months, and they are alot more efficient. I can put 1/4 of a bag of charcoal in my basket, and it will go for hours and hours. The last smoke I did, which was some bacon, I smoked the bacon for about 12 hours, and the UDS kept going till the next day.

My UDS surprised me the other day when it managed to actually run short on fuel. It burned thru 8lbs of lump in 10 hours which forced me to finish 4 butts in the oven. The wind was blowing and it was cool but I normally expect 14 hours from 8 lbs.
