This design should have more air intake and is much easier to build. When I get time I think I'm going to make a parts list and step by step plans on how to build this (as long as the test run goes as planned). I searched for hours before the first build and could never find a set of plans! Total cost was $146 due to finding free sacrificial kettles on craigslist. If you had to buy the weber lid new the cost would be $210.
I used the Kamado style door on my stainless drum as well. I agree, much easier to install, and basically the same price if you're springing for 2 brass ball valves and the other black pipe needed.
