Seems like to much cutting of the drum for me. I have limited tools and resources where i am currently living and i have no idea where to get a door like that guy. It just seems like to much work for something that really does not do that much more especially when i want to keep the cost down.

I donnt know how i am going to get the metal cap off. that thing is SO stuck. if anyone knows a good way to unscrew it let me know.

Also I have a questions about the 3 vents i am going to be drilling into the bottom of the barrel. This is what i gathered and you can correct me if i am wrong. I need to drill a 1 inch hole and then i use a 3/4 inch pipe nipple and a 3/4 inch ball valve. Seems funny to me cause a 1 inch hole for something that is 3/4 inch. AGAIN !! i am new to this so please keep the bashing to a minimim.
The small plug should have flat edges, a cresent wrench should do the trick. I went with the patented JD vent tabs. I like em cause you can fine tune then a lot more that the pipe nipples and caps method. With the nipple and cap method you will need to either have the entire cap on or off as I understand it. With the JD tabs, they turn on a single screw and can be opened or closed as much as needed, very much like the vent on a Kettle lid.

Removable lid seal insert made from old Bar-B-Kettle bottom cut to leave 2" w/ Rutland stove gasket attached to it with high-temp silicon.



(Trial run last night was a 14 lb brisket packer, cooked at 300 degrees until probe tender in 5 1/2 hours. Outdoor temperature was low 20's w/ snow showers. Cooked it Lockhart style with outstanding results -- thank you Funk for all the great info you have shared.)

I am going to add handles, but not much more. I like the simplicity.
Get ya a top like this......


Call and talk to a real person at www.arcticproducts.com and make yours look better!!

Just sayin....

First i am not the owner of this picture and i hope that this person does not get mad. I took it from who i think is the owner Barbarian. I do not know anyone here and i am sure most of you know whos picture this is but since i am new i felt i needed to show respect.
Can someone tell me how i can do this thermometer idea. I have seen a few people have the temperature guage slide right into the side of the barrel but i have not undestood how they did it.
If you refer to a part can you please use the actuall name of the part so i can go look for it at the hardware store. I have a long stem thermometer and i want to be able to do something like this so i can take it in and out with ease. Please be detailed cause i am new to this. thanks everyone

If the fitting does not have a nut just get a cap for the fitting and drill a hole so the probe will slide in. thats what I had to do.

It's all good. It's a long thread and takes some time to track. I bookmark the stuff I find interesting.

What you need is a Watts A-192 Hose Barb Adapter with 1/4 barb x 1/4 mip.

Home Depot or Lowes sells them. You will also need a nut and a washer.

look at the bag it has the size of the fitting. go to the plumbing section and show or tell them the size you need. take the gauge with you to the store and tell them what you need to do. make sure the probe fits the hole in the fitting, it will be just a little bigger than the probe it will work fine.

sweet thank you, after about half way i started writing stuff down on paper so i can remember different numbers and such.

Ill go look for this part and then try and figure out what size hole i will need to drill in the barrel.
