Hi everybody. Set up my first Heater Meter on the UDS yesterday, replacing a years old IQ110. What an upgrade, I'm totally addicted. First "real" cook today, a 18LB brisket. Setup is an Adapt-a-damper with stock delta blower on a 3/4" inlet (adapted up to 1"). Fuel is a full basket of lump charcoal started with 10 briquettes from a chimney. Using default PID parameters.

http://bbq.waltman.house (yeah I know, I know, install SSL.) Screen cap is 12 hours in.

Comments/suggestion welcome. Dips at 14:15 and 15:15, 17:32 were "lid open detected for no obvious reason". Spike at 16:30 was me taking the brisket off to crutch.

So, this brisket gave me the longest stall! After 24 hours, it was still at 195, so I bumped the setpoint up to 250F to finish. I've always been curious how long I can go, so I left it running at 225 after taking off the brisket. Approaching 30 hours at the moment and more fluctuation, but holding just fine.

HM finally lost control of the process around 3AM, so it turns out the answer is 40 hours on a 20lb load of lump.

Cooking some butts:

Edit: Done. Ran out of fuel around 13:00, had to add more. Did not insert the food probe till then, at 15:00 swapped from smaller butt to larger one.
