Here's an idea I just drew up for bending expando:



Redneck expando bender concept: Stand with one foot on each end of the piece of pipe and use your body weight to bend the expando. Base is made of 2x4's nailed or screwed together, spread about 3.5" apart and cut as long as you need them to be (2' in this example). Pipe is ~1.5" OD. You can just work it around the piece of expando until it looks right.

Thoughts?

Another option to put your firebox together is to check around for some stainless steel zip ties. I used 3-4 to tie the expanded metal ends together and another 4 to connect the bottom to the grate and another four for the pizza pan. Don't forget to snip the ends (picture taken before I did that lol)
Clean and easy but a bit more expensive then rebar wire...
If you have a Harbor Freight in the area they have em.

Man this a long thread! For all the cookers having problems cleaning drippings, I use pure clay kitty litter in the bottom of the barrel. Soake up the grease and makes it easier to clean. Im sure thats in here somewhere already LOL

Default Do these look the same to you?

I was at Academy store today and saw the Old Smokey 3" thermometers @ 19.99 there, looked an awful lot like the Spicewine Ironworks 3" thermometer for $20. What do yall think? Here's the pics.
Academy on the left, Spicewine on the right.

Might save shipping costs if you have an Academy close by.

Seen this one some place before. I do believe that it is a picture from an issue of Popular Mechanics or Popular Science in the way back 1960's! We are way behind the times in the 21st century.

Is there any place locally to get decent thermomoeters...?? Everyone looks down on the hardware store thermometers... My BGE thermometer didn't work out to well when it came to mounting to the UDS. So now I'm in search of something a little better and I hope I can salvage the hole I've already drilled. Oops..!!! hahaha

I saw the post above, but I don't have Academys around here in Virginia Beach...

It came from a 1957 article in Popular Mechanics. It was on this site back in 2007. Go here for the full article:

I would get it to 425.
When I did my season I took it to 250 and held it for 1 hr just to see how it would do. then let it go to 425 for a couple hrs.
