Doubtful but maybe, wash it, towel dry and spray with pam. This should hold it pretty much rust free 'til you fire it up.

Is there a set amount of space that needs to be between the meat and the lid to ensure proper smoke flavor prior to venting? Would the ( 1/2" holes work better or the single exhaust?

Almost done...

I will do the seasoning burn tonight... probably cook something this weekend... and I have to wait for my artistically talented MIL from Germany to visit next month (when my wife pops out girl #3) to finish the Saint Arnold Brown Ale label paint job on the side. I need to look for some stencils for the bottle cap lid to finish that part.
We had the same idea, we go through a couple of the big boxes of Miller Lite every weekend and we pull for the Blue Deuce on race day. Ultimate tailgater

I started my seasoning burn last night about 6pm. Opened all intakes, full load of charcoal, weedburner to light the coals... up to 225 in under 10 minutes. I started capping it off and got it settled in at 250 with only the ball valve 1/4 closed. I left it going all night and checked it at 5:30am before I left for work.... still sitting at 250!!!

I should have made one of these a long time ago! This is awesome!

I can't stand sauerkraut . And the German weissbier has too much of a banana flavor for my liking. She usually brings me a few beers and lots of chocolate .

Default getting lid off????

OK, now that I have read the ENTIRE thread....... I have a question that I know hasn't been answered....can you really believe that???

As stated I have a coveted SS drum, measures 23" top and bottom, real pretty....hopefully going with everything SS. My question is.............how can I get the top off and still use it as a cover?? It is a rolled top and bottom drum. I do want to find a weber like dome lid eventually so I can have two cooking shelves. Sidenote: I have a line on a SS dome lid from Arctic for around $27 plus shipping, may eventually go that route. But in the mean time I would like to salavge my present lit so I can cook whilest looking for a dome.

Any ideas on how to remove a rolled lid and still use it as a lid???

Thanks,

Paul B

In the beginning people claimed they took a cutoff blade on a die grinder and cut only the top and not the drum. Thawley had said he made a jig to do it but I must have missed that thread where he posted the picks. Either way if it was practical it would have been all over the UDS thread.

Before I started grinding away on that SS drum I sure would try to get my hands on a regular drum to practice on. It's something you'll only get one shot at doing right.

HMMmmmmmmmmm, Maybe, just maybe if you cut it out really clean like this pic, but cleaner, you could attach something to the lid to keep it from falling down into the drum and don't add any or minimal exhaust holes. Or you could find something stainless that is flat and bigger and cut a ring out of it to bolt to your top for a sealing rim. Exhaust as normal.

Then it would warp and you could use it for a taco shaped serving tray.
