Heck, I'm in North Central Texas in September- uds sitting in the sun is 150 degrees with no coal lit.
But- being frugal (broke), saving charcoal is pretty important- I may have to rig up the top band with a toggle lever to seal up after a cook. Thanks for the input.

Default type of steel for the grill grate

My double barrel, offset, reverse flow smoker is near completion. I'm getting the gill ordered and cut from an industrial steel manufacturer. I don't know a whole lot about steel.

Should I get stainless (WAY, WAY, WAY) more expensive than plain hot-rolled, diamond pattern grates?

Plain or stainless?

Will this steel grating work? I'm looking to get 13 gauge steel. Is that going to be thick enough?

thank you very much in advance.

Anythoughts?

Several pages back, Don't remember how far, its all a blur now, someone did just that, don't remember who, it's all a blur now, but it was successful

If you can't find anything else, use dish soap and HOT water to wash and clean then high heat burn. I'd think you'd be OK, but that is your decision.

I tried to get a barrel from the local refinery, but they didn't have any. Luckily I found a "food grade" barrel at a recycling plant. Who knows what was in it after the original use, so I did the clean, burn, then clean again thing.

If anyone in Iowa or eastern Nebraska is looking for drums, there is someone around here selling metal drums for 10 bucks a piece.

Default Holding low temps

After reading through this thread for the last month or so I've read numerous times about builds not being able to maintain low temps. Has anyone been successful in getting their UDS to consistently maintain lower temps, ie: 200 to 225? If this is possible, what do attribute it to? What do you feel you did to the build to get the low temps to stay steady. I'm not a big fan of fast bbq'ing so if this isn't possible with a UDS I'd like to know before I piece one together.

Jim
