Thanks for the tip. The next barrel the wife wants to add this feature so looks like another barrel will be made for the in laws.
I also seen your reply on a post about what you used for your thermometer to go through the drum but dont remember what it was nor can I find the post. It looked like a fitting of some kind with a rubber groumet were did you get that from?

Halex 1/2" water tight conduit connector;

The one pictured looks different, the rubber is elongated, the ones I bought were round and a smaller hole in it. Lowes carries them too.
They don't come with nuts, be sure to buys one / some. Both Mavericak probes can fit through one fitting.

This thing is coming along quite well. My uncle came up with the idea of butterfly valves like on an old fuel injection system.

haven't done that part yet, but I will make sure it is.

Do you guys regulate the exhaust too, or just the intake?

If you live in a large metropolitan area you have a better chance of finding a new drum or "container" vendor nearby. If you live in a rural area, you're looking at longer trip if you want new.

Here is an example of where I bought mine in Phoenix;

You want exhaust full open and regulate with intake- choking exhaust can give bitter smoke taste.........

That's a great looking intake!

I was thinking of doing a butterfly valve as well. But, I couldn't find an existing one the right size and wasn't adventurous enough to make my own.

Got my UDS all painted now. How long do I need to wait before seasoning it? The paint can says it takes a week to fully cure, but can be handled in an hour. Since the seasoning process will help cure the paint, do I need to wait the week?

I'm getting impatient. Had it all set up to paint last week, let dry for a week while I was out of town, and season it this weekend. But, I let my 15 yr old daughter help with the painting last Sunday. After some instruction and initial supervision, she was doing a good job. Went into the house for a few minutes and when I came back out she had 8 or so runs in the paint. Oh well.
