Keale, it's a 3" Brinkman therm. Got it on sale at Westlake Hardware for $19.95. Got the same thing on a couple other drums and very pleased with accuracy and are pretty tough. I put a half inch pipe nut on the back inside the drum just to be safe.

Here's one I built For a friend. You can hang meat like Chicken and ribs or use a 22 1/2" grill. I used the angle iron frame to stiffen the lid after I welded the exhaust tube.

SmokeWatcher - The magnets are already on the back of the thermo's, and they are up high enough that the head doesn't bother them. I have started placing them on the lid with thier stands though for easier readability at night when I turn the back light on :)

cajun - Yes, that is a wood lid. 3/8" plywood to be exact. Works like a charm.

My lid was really out of round, with a wow in the top part of the drum. I tried to get it back into shape, but I would have had to cold shrink it to do that. I got that suggestion from another forum and since I have the springs on it to keep it tight to the drum, it works like a charm.

Here is a pic of mine coming up to temp. Nothing special about its looks but it cooks some awesome BBQ.



A great feature is the SS hinges I used to hold the grates. They move upwards when I need to lift the bottom grate, the diffuser, or the ash pan out of the bottom making it easy to lift them out without needing to tip them and potentially spill the contents.

Here is a recent build. Just one hole at the bottom for the pitmaster hose. Works great.
