Well what I'm getting at is..............if you were running manual natural draft, and set the UDS all up to run 225, then switched from a flat to the weber lid, would the temp change ?

I put a uniflame lid on mine briefly and the temp went from 225 with the controller to around 300, and did not drop, put the flat lid back on, and the controller could again easily keep it at 225. Now the uniflame lid did not seal up as nicely as it should...some smoke was leaking around the rim of the drum. I have ( 1/2" holes in the flat lid, and the uniflame lid I had the vent wide open.

Still looking for a weber lid which will fit better, the Uniflame is 22" not 22-1/2. But if they in general run hotter, well maybe I will not look as hard :-).
