Right now I'm thinking that the bung alone would provide about as much flow as the vent on a Weber lid so no additional modifications would be necessary, but would appreciate insight from you guys.

Thanks.
What I've done and like is using a black metal threaded pipe with an elbow attached so if it rains, it doesn't fall into the drum.
