    Anyone use a pitmaster iq on the UDS

    I have always wanted one, until I got a BPS kit. I have found that my drum keeps constant temps for over 15 hours, so I haven't actually needed any sort of pit temp controller. My BPS drum is...

    Well, I got the 4 butts on at 8:30am. I put all four of them on the top rack, and it was really tight but I got them all on. It took them about 5 hours to get up to 150-155 internal temp.

    Burn Time on Big Poppa Drum Smoker

    I had my BPS in the 230-250 range for over 15 hours last weekend. They are quite fuel efficient due to how well you can control the air flow.
