Here is a picture of the insert. Post #5401 in the UDS thread describes it.

I have questions on the BGE Draft Door.....

How far was it open to hold your pit temps, and did you get an even burn in the charcoal basket? (By even I mean did the burn pattern favor the direction of the air coming in the draft door?)

I had it about half open for the 300 degree part -- the top vent was always wide open. The temp was in the mid 20's with some wind and snow. I used R.O. Lump.

Very clean even burn. I haven't built a charcoal box yet so I just used the grate and ring from a 18.5 WSM, which I elevated with three 3 1/2" x 1/2" bolts. I made sure the top vent was on the opposite side of the drum. I suspect that the design of the WSM ring, with those large round holes, helped to produce the even burn by making it easier for air to enter from below.

Man, it was LOUD!
I just kept at it without lifting my head. I'm sure someone was looking out to see what I was up to. My jigsaw is a mere 3.5 amp B&D cheapo, I got it over 10 yrs ago for 10 bucks. It did a great job.

Thats a really nice drum, I like the way you used the rope gaskets on it.

Great job! I assume you used the jig saw to cut the kettle too.

Thanks Alan.

A skill saw, not a jig saw, with an abrasive blade was used to cut the rectangular vent hole. It makes straight line cuts very easy. A sawsall was then used to finish the cuts into the corners.

The kettle was cut on a table saw with a metal blade. The saw spacer was set to 2" and then the kettle was turned sideways so the rim was against the spacer bar. The kettle was then rolled in place to make the cut. This was also very easy and precise.

Great idea! I've used abrasive blades on a skillsaw to cut sheet metal roof panels,a few sparks coming off the blade. I'm sure the table saw was cleaned of all sawdust before you began!
Thanks for answering!

Thank you muttley.

You can buy them new on line, but they are very expensive that way. Every now and then you will find a reconditioned one online for a better price. Best bet is craigslist and a lot of patience.

I first started looking for them a couple of years ago. Here is a thread I started back in June of 2007 about some I found for $100 on Craigslist. http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...stainless+drum

Here is the thread by Brother CircleW that alerted me to this unused, unlined drum for $40. A Stainless Steal.
