Butts on the UDS

It has been at least 4 weeks since I smoked some butts.

Off to a late start with these four. On at 12:00 am.

Three with Wolfe Rub Original and one with a rub that I threw together.

Lookin good Cliff!

Do you find problems with getting the temps up with the drum full like that?

I've also had problems with all the fat dripping on the coals and snuffing the fire.

Drum ran solid between 230-260 all night. I dumped an entire 10 lb bag of Ozark Oak lump in with some pecan and cherry. The drum never spiked. When It started it's predictable temp decline after 4-5 hours I mad a minor adjustment and it went right back up.

It is now 12:00 pm and I have had the butts off for about 30 min.

I had to leave the drum alone some today which is out my comfort zone a bit but only because of what would happen if the lid was off and not because of my confidence in the smoker.

I think there is enough fire to cook something else.
