I was recently sitting on a plane from a month long trip from amsterdam. I didnt have a chance to smoke, grill, cook, heck even microwave anything. so that 10 hour flight left me with alot of brainstorming time. What do yall think about installing a fluke on the uds? Just like in a chimney. I figured it would elimate the spike in temperatures when you remove the lid, to do what ever you have to with the meat.

Pretty sure he means a chimney flue. Not really sure how this will help avoid temp spikes when the lid is removed though. Still going to have excess oxygen entering the drum with the lid off that will allow the fire to build until the lid is replaced.

On second thought, I guess if you could cut off the fire just below the grates then having the lid off would not introduce any more air to the fire. However, this seems like quite a feat to accomplish.

Yeah, I kinda see where you are going but I am not sure how you will implement it. Am I correct in my assumption that you intend to have the flue between the fire and the grates? I guess you could do some sort of "pinwheel" type flue that could open and close much like on a weber kettle. However, much like using a waterpan or baffle, I would be concerned about needing to use more fuel to get temps up due to blockage from the flue mechanism.

I use a cover to a 30 gallon drum as a heat diffuser/damper in my drum when cooking at low temps like 225+-. Drilled a bunch of holes in it to get better air flow and some juices can still hit the coals. I do use more fuel for a given cook but getting more even temps and no flare-ups when removing the cover for tending is more than worth it.

Hello everyone. This is my first post. I found this forum looking for a How To for a UDS and THANK YOU! Got my barrel Friday and burned it out Sunday...I think. I just want to be sure that the color of the above picture is what the barrel should look like inside? I can look at pics on here, but they've of course all had multiple cooks or at least been seasoned. Mine held a washer fluid concentrate (methanol) in it's past life. I hosed it out until it ran clear before I took the cutting wheel to the top. Don't know what kind of liner if any it would have, but after a 5+hour burn the inside is a black color as when it started. The outside paint is off except in one small spot. I bought a propane Burner (weed burner) yesterday that I'm going to take to the rest of the outside tonight along with the inside (just to be safe I guess) but wanted an idea of color I should be expecting when it's good. Thanks . All that's left is to mount the grate and build the fire basket. Can't wait to throw my first piece of flesh on. My wife was not a meat eater when I met her, but through proper ordering (me telling her how to order her steaks and what not) and me cooking for her, she's realized meat can be extremely flavorful and soft like butter:D I can't wait to introduce her to the world of meat heaven.
