As i still cannot download my pic's, my UDS is completed and seasoning as we speak!!
Put 5# Rancher in my charcoal basket from my off-set and a 1/2 chimney of lit with some Mesquite about 1:30.
1 cap open and my ball valve 1/4 open and settled in at 235*.......5 HOURS AGO!!!
I am totally amazed at how these thing's run!! Lifted the lid to take a peak and have only burned about 1/2 of that charcoal, temp ran up to 270 from the blast of air and settled right back down to 230ish without touching a thing!!
Will be breaking it in this weekend with something, now to get some more part's for that other barrell!!

was wondering what if a temp gage was mounted just off center on the lid still leaving room for a handle would this give a better temp reading than at great level and off to the side

If I can get over and pic up my drum tomorrow I will be starting my build Saturday

It wouldn't hurt to add a thermometer in the drum lid, the temps will register higher. I have one mounted in a drum lid and all my Weber lids have have them. I would consider a hole for a remote meat probe on the side at grate level too.

That is how I have done mine, thread it though a hole in the side and stick it through a block of wood in the middle of the grate.

I'm considering moving my temperature gage from the side of my drum to the lid. Does it give more accurate readings there?

A little trick to for removing paint after burn is take a wire wheel like this and trap between 2 nuts and washers on a 3 ft. piece of 1/2 allthread (threads are to fit 5/8-11thd shaft). Chuck up in a descent 1/2" drill motor and run up and down inside of drum while spinning.
