Rocky, Tel-Tru has a 12" thermo in their food service category, $36 though.

The one I used is a cheap turkey fryer thermo I picked up a local restaurant supply house for about $6.

Here is the link to Tel-tru for you.

Looks like a trip to Wal-Mart is coming in my near future. What kind of fittings are those for the thermometer to slide in? Do they leak when you pull it out?

The fitting I used is for some kind of water line. If you go to the plumbing section of your hardware store or the Big Orange Box you will find it there. The stem fits pretty closely in the fitting and slides in and out easily. Don't think there is a problem with any leakage as the hole is less than 1/8".

BarberQue, I just used a bit about the same size as the stem. I did not want to get to big where it leaned down from horizontal.

Bubba, what do you use as a hanger for the lid??? Nice drum to.

Do you like the double hook better than the single hook?

Default What is that brace?

Hi Guys,

I want to brace my intake valve like the one in this picture, but I can't find the brace at the hardware store. What is it called so I know what to look for. BTW whoever built this drum did a great job!!

Not sure what it is called exactly, but if you look in the electrical section of the hardware store or the Big Orange Box near the electrical conduit stuff, you will find it. Conduit clamp perhaps?

Default long thermo

Thanks for the input about the long themo!
Cooked 18lb turkey yesterday;my second one ever,did my homework on the thread [or so I thought],brined the bird for 1 1\2 hrs rinsed and dried it ,put it in uds side temp 325 side temp.Little maple chunks for some smoke and let her go;boy did she ever smoke!!!!!
Took a look in 2 1\2 hrs to see if it was time to put in the spuds and the bird was already done!I was thinking it'd take another hour or so but bird came off @3:30,done.
Middle temp must have been 400+.
Bird was excellent!Fed 14 people with lots left for lunches.

I was really lucky! MUST get to wallyworld for the long thermo!

Lovin that UDS ,Happy Easter, Bros!

Rocky
