Hi All
Lone time reader. Short on post.
Just thought I might add my two cents worth. A easy way to mount the thermometer Gage is use a 3/4 nipple mounted just under the grill and a cork from a wine bottle perfect fit. Just drill a hole in the cork and slide the thermometer probe or cable through the cork and fit in the nipples
Also it was mention before, If the dome donor lid is not a good fit use a small ball ping hammer and flatten the rim of the cover. Then set the cover on your drum and slowly work your way around the drum using the hammer to bend the rim over the drum working from side to side. If you still need a better fit use the ring from a removable top, drum to seal the lid and drum. I use a old pair of Vice grips.(Thanks to someone suggestion many posts ago) It maybe a tight fit but you don't have to open it that often.
A easily way to clean the ashes from the bottom of the drum is to buy a cheap ash shovel and bend the shovel end to a 90 degrees angle. Mine cost $3.66 at a local farm store.
I'll try to post pictures not having much luck.
Remember this can be habit forming one or two UDS may not be enough.
