So, in theory we could add that UDS works well in tornado warning situations too. Guess, at some point we'll be able to test earthquakes out here. May have already been proven.

fordman, understanding you were asking jerrykr about springs...not that scientific. Just something short enough to fit on the bolt you're using and strong enough to hold the vent caps. I found mine at local hardware store no problem. HD will have them. Only done one cook so far but like the dampers...I know No Pron! Wasn't worth posting.
Ribs this weekend and will post pron. More practice with temps.
Greenlee makes some step drill bits comparble to the Irwin Unibit. About the same price range, but another option especially if you plan to drill larger than 7/8". In the Electrical aisle near the conduits at HD and bLowes.

You don't need the plans....I had them before I found this site. Best thing is to read the thread and jot stuff down or copy and paste it into a document as you go. Then you'll have all you need and th background of WHY.
Doesn't mean you have to listen to alll of it...I didn't...but UDS is working so far.

Do they have Craigslist in Iowa? Good for picking up old grills and stuff.

I bought my grate for $10 at sears. Just cooked on it this weekend. Made country style ribs. I have 3 3/4" holes around the bottom. Used flat rubber magnets to manage the air. once I set it it held perfect for hours. Still a lot of lump left in the basket too.

Default Plans?

Doesn't get any simpler than this... Other than using magnets.

Ill bet that this is the same guy from a couple of months ago who was trying to sell a completed UDS on e bay. Once he was sufficiently chastised and harassed, he is taking another angle

What do the dome lids you all are using measure ? Or what does your drum you have it on measure?

The dome lids are 22" weber kettle lids. They are hit and miss on fitting drums. Local drums require bending lip on lid. I found that a Kingsford lid fits without modding it. Swampb cuts a section off a kettle and sets it on drum lip.

Yep sfbbqguy thats the bar alright, lots of drinkin and thinking (mostly drinkin) takes place at "the bar".
I brew my own allgrain homebrew beer and have it in kegs and on tap in the beer fridge, its all located on the back porch so we can eat and drink whilst contemplating life and watching the kids kill each other

got a nice Czeck pilsener on tap at the moment and am just about to have one,

Cheers Steve.
