I was thinking about putting the exhaust right in the middle of the lid and having two handles, but now am not sure.
This may be why the BDS from Rocky out in North Carolina seems to be so consistent. His exhaust is in the form of eight evenly space holes around the top... My UDS does the same thing and I don't think that I have quite as big a temp diff. from my 4" probe to the center. I'll have to measure it next time I cook.
