    Luck out at work, had a spanking brand new 19inch dia. Drum, fits the 18.5 weber rack like a glove![​IMG]
    Butts 1st hour in, the drum burns a steady 225-250.

    7 hours in, drum at 200, pork at 175,
    Spritz time and I'm foiling and refueling, all good so far.. [​IMG]

    Wow they both look nice!
     
  5. your good for aleast a 8 hour spam,, filling my basket with a 1/3 bag of stubbs charcoal, it burns long, and you will wake up with about 200*degrees still in the barrel,. this is with outside temps in the high 80's in afternoon, low 60's by early mornings.

    have not use a full bag yet for a 12 hour smoke, fall temperatures and winter coming, this will most likely change.
     
  6. i tried too make a smaller uds out of the same size barrel and i couldnt get it to stay going once i put the lid on it...  i had a 1 inch ball valve on the bottom and the smokey joe lid on top and when i would get the charcoal going and then put the lid on it, it would just totally die out..  with the ball valve open and vent on top open so i just threw it away and made another big uds!!!
     
  7. Grill is 7inches from top, with one ball valve, and 3 pipe, openings 3 inches drilled from bottom, cap off air as needed to control air intake. Keep it at N,S,E,West configuration.

    Keeping it clunky and chunky....
    Just in time for Phila.Eagles vs. Falcons
    205 internal off the uds, let rested at leAst 1 hour, despite the picking!!!
