I would jump all over a 110 if it were 6 feet tall. Since building my extension I am hooked on hanging meat for smoking.

is there a ratio of air intake size to exhaust size?

I have seen different examples and was wondering if one is better than the other.

Finally found were to get my drum from now just have to find time to pick it up and start this build ...... and yes I know plenty of pics during build and after

I use a Weber kettle lid with the four holes that are about 1/2 inch. It works fine. For intake I have four 1/2 pipe nipples. Three have caps and one has a ball valve. Usually, I only need one of the caps off and the ball valve open about 1/2 the way to get it to chug along at 220-230.

I know Keale had some problems with too much exhaust opening. He had to stick foil in some of openings.

I am trying to gather all the best suggestions before I begin my build of the first uds. So my first question about the air vent holes: would magnets big enough to cover the holes and then slide open as you needed be a good cheap otion for air control?

Sears and I think Ace Hardware sells a 26" round charcoal grill... you should be able to find replacement grates that would work...

Thanks n8man, that was what I was thinking of doing. One more question; Is it necessary to extend the bottom air pipes into the barrel, or does that just give you a place to rest the charcoal basket? I was wondering if it helped the ignition of the coals.

On most of mine that I have built I have used a close nipple (all thread). On one I used approx a three in nipple and have seen no difference.

My pipes are flush with the inside wall of the drum, but some have extended the pipe so that the charcoal basket can rest on top. Mine burns fairly well as is but your mileage may vary
