i monkeyed around with the lid, and it spiked up to 295.
i closed everything off, and the temp wont drop.
or at least it hasn't for about the past 30 mins.
I started filling in some of the leaks around the lid with some foil to see if that helps.
we will see

Leaks around the lid? Is it a flat lid or a weber?

its a weberlike lid. it doesn't fit perfectly around the top, I think i am going to make a foil gasket around it for next time.

I got all vents closed, with foil jammed in all the little holes, and it has dropped to 283 now. so it appears to be on the way down now.

Also, there is no food in it, so if i had a big brisket/butt in there, i think that would absorb some of the heat, to lower the temp a little bit

Does the lid sit down inside the lip roll or did you take that off and it just sort of sits precariously on top?


I am thinking you might want to shave some mro metal off and use some high temp rubber around the inside of the drum at the very top. Then make the lid to snugly squeeze down, causing a press type fit....but that is just the machinist/ designer in me.

It just rests on top. I flattened the rim of the lid out to rest on top of the drum.

I got the temp down to 250, then opened one air vent about 1/8 of an inch, and left for 3 hours. when i got back it was at 275.

I just but some MOINK balls, and some chicken lolly pops on. and going to get a couple fattys on in about 30 mins. so we will see what that does to the temp

I hope it works for you.
So far I have had no trouble with the lid-drum problem,in fact it fits perfect.
I've scored a 2nd hand Weber 22,5" and a 55 gallon drum and the lid goes smoothly over the lip roll.
I have to say that I still didn't do anything with it yet accept cleaned it from the outside and gathered some more data.
Probably 'cause there is so much info spread around here!
Today I made a really good score,I'll post some pics in a lil while.

I work in a mail office of a big hospital,during the day I meet a lot of people.
Some of these people may come in handy!
Today I spoke some guys who fix our climatecontrollers and this is what I got for free:(accept the metalcutter)

A nice dish of ingredients for the UDS to start with!

That is very nice!
I don't own anything worthy of that other than my spice cabinet.
