Thanks drumheads!

At the bottom of the screen you will find a Google search box, if you put "norco and tide" in the box and search you will find several places where Norco recommends tide, but I never found and actual ratio. Post 3981 on p 266 says heavy mixture of tide and hot water.

Good luck,

I know it's probably back somewhere in the thread, but mind if I ask how you made that extension? I just got a ten dollar weber and I still want to use it as a Weber sometimes so I don't want to hammer the rim out and don't want to cut up the bottom. That looks good. I guess otherwise I would need a strip of sheet metal to make a ring.

Holy Fark, that's more than I 've spent in total including some tools :). Down to the scrap metal yard I guess.

Motleys got it. It's a Weber ring!

Not to go off topic here, but shouldn't there be some sort of prize for the 5,000th post to this thread? It's not that far away.....

Holy long threads Batman! 4956 posts 331pages... Took me almost 2 weeks to read the whole thing, left me with no questions and I just happened to finish my uds today. I followed the Norco k.i.s.s. method, only deviation was no welding and I had to add a coupler to the inside of the 3/4'' nipples, the holes I drilled were a little to big for the nipple threads to grab. I am planning on doing my seasoning cook tomorrow and throw a couple fatties on. I will take some pics then and post em up.

first cook on the UDS..she is chugging along at 225 with two holes open (one uncapped, one ball valve wide open). It was up to 300 when I put the chicken on. With two holes open, shouldnt it be higher? I have a weber lid with the holes about half closed on the lid. Should I be worried about anything at this point? Im about 1 hour into the cook with the chicken on.

Open the Weber lid vents wide open !!!!!!!!!!! Real important to keep them fully open. You can easily get a real nasty buildup of smoke without them wide open. Good lunck bro!

Skidder 02-07-2010 07:48 PM

Almost 5000 pages and the most important info is in the first 15 pages.

CUTigerQ 02-07-2010 07:51 PM

cool, thanks man...went out and opened them up

500th post
Being very new around here, with only a few posts, I am perhaps out of place with this suggestion, but I think the honor of the 5000th post should go to NorcoRedneck, with SwampRB right behind.

A couple of questions, which metal would be best for a diffuser, aluminum or stainless steel?

And, would a 90 amp flux core MIG welder be adequate for welding parts on a UDS?
