Jeanie, your 8 holes are each 1/2"? You cook with all of them open I assume?

They are 1" holes and I leave them open.

Granted, I haven't been in a Math class in 35 years but wouldn't it take 16 1/2 inch holes to equal 1 two inch hole?

Correct. Which means that cowgirl's UDS (which has eight 1" holes) has twice the area of one 2" hole, according to my calculations.

My 85 and two 55 gallon drums have both Weber lids and barrel lids with eight 1/2" exhaust vents. My 15 gallon Mini has four 1/2" exhaust vents and Smokey Joe lid and the 30 gallon has an 18" Weber lid because it came w/o a lid.

I have experimented with a flat top lid with a Weber daisy wheel exhaust vent (4 hole) and it also worked fine, as with using a Weber lid I found meats cooked directly beneath the vent cooked faster.
So I actually prefer to cook with the drum lids with the 8 vent holes.

Mine are all Big Drum Smoker Clones, and I never cook indirect with them-thats what WSM's are for! www.bigdrumsmoker.com

I cook with all exhaust holes open on top and 90% of the time I have 2 air intakes open at the bottom.
I have 4 air intakes around the bottom of the drum. 3- 3/4" holes with pipe nipples and 1- 3/4" ball valve.


The drum has been working great for years.





My new BPS drum has the 8 hole wheel exhaust.













and two strips of intake holes around the bottom..just slide to open as many air holes as needed.




Love this BPS drum too.. works great!

Eight is great!











My first drum employed the Weber lid Daisy wheel vent until I got hipped to the BDS!







Use what you got-its all good!
