    Drum 2.1 complete...



    Added the intake riser to this model, don't really care for the difference it make's in the temp. flucuation, not as steady temp's and not as efficient burn's...IMO i like the bend over model

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.

    On my first UDS, I too went with a raised intake. For some reason, I had problems with airflow and had the temp variations that you mention. Didn't add it to my ver 2.0 and with 2 1" intakes on the bottom, no problems at all... Took the pipe off the ver 1.0 and viola... no problems.

    Still not really sure why I had issues as others are using the raised intake with no reported issues, but... I know what worked for me!

    I wonder if it is caused by the intake riser heating up causing the incoming air to heat and want to rise instead of pulling it straight in at the bottom? Just a thought.

    All I can tell is that the pipe that I used as the riser did not get hot, or even warm... Could not tell that it conducted any heat. Don't think that was the problem, but I really don't know.

    Could it be the smooth flow of air? Too many turns to keep the air from truly flowing, but more bouncing through the pipe??

    It could be... as soon as I took the pipe off, all problems solved.

    If it's the turns causing turbulence, you might be able to solve it with a larger intake. That way you might get smoother airflow.
