and 1 is a 1" ball valve



On the first drum I found that 1 - 3/4" nipple was too much and a full open 3/4" valve on the riser was not enough to maintain temp.

Did the first test cook/season yesterday and that 1" valve in conjunction with the 1/2" nipple worked great. Here's what we had



Some burnt ends, my first, the pit seasoning basic fatty and a tube steak for the little boy.

This doesn't show well, but here is the pic of the thermometer at 250*



and a close up of the found in the trash Weber Top, with the edge pounded flat and then rounded over to fit the drum. Works like a charm.



Maybe some ribs today.
Nice lookin' pit bro! I need to get some paint on mine pretty soon...what did you use on yours? It looks brushed on...I like it!
