Here she is:

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...6&l=5fae849ac1

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...2&l=d4922765b4

alternate lid which I scored for free.
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...1&l=5820eda7f9

Did 1 more test run this afternoon and seasoned her with a slab of fatback. Lit the whole neighborhood up when that got to cooking She held 250 the whole time till I shut her down......currently using a 11.5 inch wide fryer basket and had no issues with the 3-4 hours she was going. Plan on building a better basket but for now it seems to be working with the fry basket.

Question on draw. Would it be better to use the Weber kettle lid or the flat lid to get the most efficient draw/airflow?

For anyone needing a lid or a rain cover I found this at Gander Mountain. It is a deer feeder lid that is made of galvanized. I bought it to cover my flat top drum lid to keep rain out of it while it is not in use. I am sure you could use it for your lid if needed as well. $35.

Mine's 13.5" dia. x 8" deep. See my signature for the "how I made it" video. (note I said "how I made it" and not "how-to"... ) It's about the perfect size for a ~15 hour cook at 225. I've gone 13 hours and had some left over.

Should also note that the inlets (if open) will have a constant flow of cool air through them - and even if closed will be partially outside the drum being cooled. I don't think the plugs on them ever even got very warm to the touch.

Agreed. Even the side of the drum barely gets warm at anything lower than about a foot up the side of my UDS.

Just remember if you build it like I did, turn the expanded sheet around 90° from the way I oriented it. It's about four times easier to bend that way.

So when you cut the expanded steel, the diamond pattern should be vertical to you?

I can't answer for everybody!

But I used a fire grate for a 18 inch weber kettle. Built up the side 8 inches.

Yep, that's exactly what I did on my basket. The charcoal grate from an 18.5 inch Weber is 13.5 inches in diameter. Then I bolted a 16 inch galvanized steel pizza pan to the bottom of it.

About to paint my UDS, do I paint under the lid or not or doesn't really matter. It is almost bare metal at the moment, still has some paint there. Would prefer to paint it for cosmetics but wont if it will affect my cooking results in some way. (I'm using the drum lid, NOT a weber lid)

No, you do not want to paint under the lid.

Yeah, no paint needed. It'll get a nice, black, oily coating on it the first time you use it. It'll be better off without paint.
