That looks fairly familiar... FYI Doc...that design does not like lump charcoal. I had to re-light mine 3 times Sunday at Paul Kirk's class...it kept cloggin' up at the bottom. If you wanna burn lump...use a charcoal grate (style) for the bottom. It was my first time using lump (provided by the class)...briqs work like a charm and will hold a low-n-slow forever...I used 3/4 holes in the bottom.

Default On my way!!!!!!

WOW...what a thread, I am officially giving it Legendary Thread status...



Anyway, I am on my way to building my first UDS. I recently acquired 4 55 gallons drums for 5 bucks each and a older weber 22 inch grill for FREE!!. From the E on the vent I believe it to be a 1983 model. Its almost in too good of shape to ruin. It is missing its ash pan but thats easy to work around. I will be keeping it around and only borrowing the grates and lid for my UDS. I also have a brinkman electric smoken'grill that the neighbor was tossing out so I grabbed it for my ash pan/fire grate holder upper thinggy.Smoker and food pron ASAP!

A silicone o-ring should be OK up to around 300 deg. F.

Default Thinking out loud

a 90 degree bend on the inside of each air intake. Swirl the air inside a bit to get a bit more "convection" and smooth out temps across the grates.

Eh? Whaddya think?

I have actually been thinking the same thing, point them in the same direction (left or right not up or down). Anyone with thermal convection dynamic knowledge. (is that even a thing )

I've been thinkin'...has anyone tried putting an access panel on their drums...ala WSM? It would have helped a lot last weekend when I was having' issues burning lump in my briq basket. I've got a few more drums laying around I can chop up...I think I'll come up with a sketch and see what you guys think.
