You ask some great questions and I can only give you my opinion from my builds. I also use a cheap 1" hole saw just bought some extra 3/4" bits in case I broke my guide bit. I use both a weber top and a flat top(2 UDS) and I added no extra ventilation to the weber and it burns great as does the 2" bung. I have seen some mods to the charcoal basket to make the UDS a UDG and they seem to work well I will try to find the thread. As far as a burn I would burn it just to cleanse the inside before the season burn if you can't (cheapskate mod) I would buy a wire wheel and use a drill to buff out the inside -got my wire wheel for $4 at lowes- and bought a cheap corded drill from Harbor Freight to save my cordless battery. Best advice I got on my first build was KISS and it turned out real good and cheap to build. Hope this helped some Alan
