Another question I have is regarding paint. Everyone says to use high temp paint, if I paint the drum in high temp then a normal paint colour in sections over that, do you think it will be ok? I see people with stickers on their drums so assume it would be ok, but would like to hear from the Brethren.
When I did a burn out on my drum it warped the barrel opening a tad bit so when I put my lid on it kinda snaps on. Its a perfect seal. Also I think you would be fine with the paint when I'm cooking at 250 on my drum I can touch it without burning myself. They don't really get super hot on the outside. Or at least mine doesn't.
My real name is Clint. Weber Kettle 22.5. UDS. Working on another UDS.
