Saturday Butts

I decided to smoke some butts starting in the morning rather than overnight just to remind myself why I like cooking overnight..

40 lbs is all my 22" grate can hold laying out flat.

Larry, did you put a mojo on me or something.

After five hours my drum went a-wall on me. I couldn't keep temps above 240 at all. I

I had to transfer the whole cook over to my wsm.

Sounds like UDS failure Cliff. What do you think caused it?

I'm sorry Cliff, I just can't stand to see my friends cook out of trashcans..........Puff uses his as a heater too.

The major factor was the lack of airflow around the meat. I have smoked four several times but these took up most of the grate.

Other factors were :

Low 40's all day

High wind all day

Small pcs of lump in this bag

Cliff I don't know a thing about UDS's, however I've had butts snugged together like that in a WSM and as long as you have sufficient airflow (which it looks like you did on the UDS) around the outsides you should be fine. I wouldn't have worried that much about temps only being around 240ļ.........that's a lot of meat and it takes time for temps to even out.

Here is a weird deal.

I poured 3/4 of a full bag of lump into the charcoal basket. Think of an over stuffed wsm ring. That is about 8lbs.

I can usually get 12-14 hours of burn time from this mount.

After five hours, this is all that was left.



There is no way that I would have ever made it even 7 hours judging by what was left.

I remember thinking to myself that the chunks of lump seemed kind of small.
