Thanks Mark! That was my first cook on a UDS. The Ribs were very moist
but, they were done to the point that they were falling off the bone.
I used the 3-2-1 method. I think that I could have cut the time spent in the foil down a little.

That ugly thing is the Prototype for the next one.
Looking for a good drum now with a crimped top as opposed to the rolled lip which should fit the Weber lid better.

Default New No Weld Fire Box.

I haven't seen this yet and I've read this entire thread three times.
You're right, I have no life!

Anyway, thought I'd share with ya. I have since put a pail bail on it,
easy to remove. 3/4"expanded on the bottom, 1/2" expanded on the sides.
I will get one of those cheap $8.00 grills from Academy
and affix it to the bottom of the box if it will fit.
That bottom opening idea sounds good in theory but it is a PIA.

PS: Thanks Norco and others for all of your suggestions.

Sure is Barbarian!
Well it was... burned the hell out of it, good to go now. Really.

There seems to be a lot of attention paid to galvanized components on this board. I really don't know if the concerns are justified or not.
The Science doesn't appear to support the fear.

I've been eating out of a galvanized trash can for thirty years and
am still here. I maybe a bit goofey nowadays but I think it is just
a matter of getting older.

I did some loin ribs on my UDS the other night. 3 hours at 230 degrees and they were perfectly done. No foil.

JG, I have a feeling that those would be just about perfect.
I'll have to make some adjustments next time.
How moist were they?

Question Drum Lid Question.

Has anyone tried one of these?
They lock down tight. I would think that with the addition of a knob
that it may work pretty well.

Only time i use my ring is when i'm traveling.

If you remove the lid gasket, a locking ring doesn't help much anyhow.

Unless you have done the "Trash man Slam" on your drum and it's out of round.
Don't ask me how I know.

Time to bring up the Thirdeye Hoe Scoop for those too lazy to read all 2381 post.

The current drum has been slammed Norco.
I found new canola oil drums with this clamp for 30 Bucks today on CL.

Just purchased a Pooper Scooper.
Not as cool as the Thirdeye model but it does work well.
I have read the entire thread three times and never saw this style of clamp mentioned. Hence the question. :)

Always good to bring stuff up. Wish I had such a clamp for my first one. I welded a Harbor Freight vice grip clamp to the threaded ring that came with mine (like the one Thirdeye/DR KY posted recently). Works good but clap ring would be the ticket.
