If you had your choice between the step bit and a 13/16's hole saw bit, which one would you choice. I was planning on going with 4-1/2 inch intakes, but thinking about taking it up to 4-3/4's intakes.

On another note, I need a drill to get this project going, the sales guy at Lowes was trying to get me amped up on a 18 vold Dewalt drill, just so happens the wife walked up at the perfect time as he was pitching the complete 18 volt combo kit, and agrees that it was a great deal, looks like I may have some sweet tools in my future, pluse a sweet UDS as well, picking up the drum tomorrow!

A step bit would be like an all in one tool. For one that does not need to drill many holes very often it is a good choice. Just got to be careful and drill slow and check the hole size as you go. Nothing like saying I drilled the hole 3 times and it is still to big.

18v Dewalt a good choice, try and get a back-up battery.

Quick question... I used a few small galvanized pieces at the base for the air intake. Do you think this is a problem? I didn't think so but wanted to ask.

Bandit- I can't give you and informed answer but my opinion says you should be alright as long as they don't get near any heat. I try and stay with stainless due to weather issues and my lust over it but black pipe is the way to go.

Someone in the know please chime in.

I would agree on this too. One question, are the galvanized pieces on the inside or outside of the drum? Are they galvanized pipe that threads into the holes? Reason I'm asking, air passing through the galvanize into the drum shouldn't hurt as long as the galvanize isn't heating up enough to emit fumes. If they are outside the drum & below the heat, I can't see how a few very small pieces could be a problem but I'm no expert.

The health risk is minimal at worst. Different story if your welding the stuff all day. Even if you work in a zinc plating factory, OSHA deosn't require any protective gear for fumes. Attached is a PDF that explains these risks.

Question-
Who was it that built the UDS upside sown? After cleaning mine this weekend having a removable bottom is a MUST for me! That or find a way to absorb the drippings that miss the coals.

I went on ebay and spotted a 18'' pizza pan but in keeping with the idea of lowest cost I passed on it. Any other ideas?

I remember seeing the upside down drum somewhere in this thread. My next one (notice I haven't even gotten the first perfected yet and I'm already thinking about the second ) will be like that. I tried using a 16" terra cotta saucer (the kind that just goes under a flower pot) with the charcoal basket sitting on top of it, but I think that's hindering airflow a little. I could raise the basket a little & that might work.

I considered the pizza pan idea too - still may go that route, or may make an ash removal tool out of a hoe. The upside down drum with removable bottom has to be the way to go. Remove the bottom & you can even take that to the carwash & hit it with the pressure washer.

I believe Norco made the first upside-down UDS. I have a short inner barrel in mine. It's easy to lift out and it doubles as a table top grill.
