I just used 3 clamps I got at Harbor Freight. They are adjustable.

I took the rubbber seal out of the lid and rolled up some tin foil "snakes" to put into the lid's lip instead.

It's not a perfect seal, but after a few smokes, the drippings and just general grease settle in the lip and help seal it up.

I can shut everything down completely and the fire goes out, so it's can't be leaking air very badly.

I decided that this thread isn't long enough. I hadda tack on to the end. (Welding pun not intended--but funny!) I saw this get-up, and just had to applaud the engineering! This is COOL!

The holes on mine is 5/8 of inch and has a 1 inch wide and 3 inch long strip of metal that I can use to open or put them in place over the holes. I have 3 holes around the bottom, and up top I use the two holes that was in my lid but I always leave them open.

Default What a post...

Just got through this huge post. Much info here. I think my head is still spinning. I forgot most of it but I think I am ready. Now time just to find a drum.
Great info and thanks for all your time you guys spent putting this together.. It was a long but very useful read.

UDS is like what they told you about fat girls. It's what's on the inside that counts.
