After about 2 hours, then again around 4 hours.

I cant remember flipping...

Thirdeye, noticed your cooking grate looks as clean as the new one I have in my garage. What do you use to clean it?

Those are the Weber grates, they have that bright finish anyway. It was fairly new in that picture, but I spray them with pam and then wipe them down at the end of the cook when still warm.

Mista-Are you a mopper or spritzer?

If you use a Rib rack one end of the Ribs will be MUCH more done than the other

A spritzer when I wrap. Otherwise, I leave em alone.

FYI... my brother got a Weber Kettle lid by calling Weber directly. I think he said it was $57 or something like that.

I don't know what the difference is but when I pull the lid on my drum the temp always drops then climbs back up. All most all you guys plus the BDS site say the temp spikes when you remove the lid.
The only difference on mine is a door for loading the firebox, but Mistas' drum has a door.
Mista does your temp go up or down?

Mine does drop while the top is off if that is what you mean. However, when I put it back on I found I get a big spike unless I choked the fire for a few minutes before I opened the lid.

Are you saying that after you put the top back on your temp still drops?

What type of businees are you all finding drums at ?

swamprb 01-31-2007 12:44 PM

Version 1 has 4 Weber daisy wheel vents with 3/4" holes and an 18.5" kettle bottom for coals (think BGE) and I had much better drafting and the temps did not really fluctuate that much when I opened the lid and it steadily cruised at 250-275* for over 11hrs. It's a 35" drum.
#2 is a 38" 2 rack clone and I fought the temps every time I turned the ribs. I'm going to tweak it a little and keep see what develops. I put an ad on Craigslist and found a guy that deals in Bee pollen and Echinacea has a supply of unlined food grade drums. $20 each delivered!
Love that smell!

I found mine at an industrial machine repair shop. They get mineral oil in the drums. Other places to try: automotive repair shops, recycle centers, scrap metal dealers

The brethren microwave kicks butt again. Did 1 rack of spares and 4 slabs of beef ribs. 3 hours. Held 220 steady the entire time.

2 small briskets getting dusted for Sunday on ol' Ugly!
