doing 3 8lb butts this weekend on the UDS, my question is do I have to worry about the fat dripping down on coals and putting the fire out around 6-8 hr mark. I thought I read somewhere where people were having problems with that. One more question where do you drill to run your meat probes at, through the lid.

Nope never had My fire snuffed out..
If I was worried about that Id put a pan under the meat to catch most of the drippings.
I dont run a pan on the 3rd rack as much as I thought Id would..
But I built it so I could..

They did mention if You are using charcoal bricket it might die out due to the drippings smoothering the fire..
I use Lump and it burns hot..Never had a problem and Ive done almost 80 lbs of butts at 1 time..No problem.

Mine never went out, but move the meat closer to the side if you can, this way it won't drip on center of basket.

At least by what I have read. most folks build a UDS so the dripping go into the fire and make more smoke in addition to the wood. I've not actually built one yet.
