Hi Lee,

Basically because I am a big guy with a bad back and don't want to bend over to mess with the nipples or a valve all the time to adjust the temp.  ::)

I also use an iQue-110 stoker and the draft doesn't matter as much. I have read that tall intakes don't draft as well to control the temps. I cannot speak to that, but I shortened the stack just in case.

Here is a later pic. I shortened the pipe and painted the UDS so it is not nearly as ugly. This pic shows the iQue hooked up.

What is the purpose for having the tube that runs up the side of the UDS?

air intake.  typically, when cooking with a UDS only one intake port on the bottom is open.  why bend over to adjust it when you can run a pipe up the side to adjust it easily?
