Default Caps rusted on UDS

The other day I went out to start up my UDS and the pipe caps were rusted onto the nipples. It was so bad that I had to get a pair of channel locks and the jb weld holding the nipples in broke before the cap did. I just took the entire nipples out and threaded them back in when I needed to but in the future is there anything I can do to avoid this if I get new nipples and caps?

I know, I really wish I could use it more. We have just been so busy the last 6 months or so I really haven't had any time.

I didn't think WD-40 would last outside over any decent period of time. I will start putting a little coat of veg oil on there though.

Try using Brass nipples and caps.
Works here.

Mine has the magnets covering the holes and works very well. I've seen all the posts about all the fancy ways to do air intakes but sometimes just the very simplest way to do the job is best.

I have most of the makings for another UDS and it will have magnets also.

Magnets are your friend. When they go bad put another one on.

Just throw some grease on the nipples before putting the cap back on. I'd recommend not using a food based grease, but an actual thick, mechanical-use type grease. No reason to worry about mold and decay, and it's not actually a factor for the cooking anyway. Just my $0.02.
