    This is a Big Poppa Drum kit.  Smokes grills and sears

    It has great temp control but I hooked up an IQ to use on some low and slow cooks/all nighters

    This shows the searing level for the charcoal basket

    here is mine.. I just finished some other mods today... 

    add the AMNPS Pops Mailbox addition.. Love it so far...

    getting plenty of smoke...

    slapped a fresh coat of paint,.. I also added some more vents to see if I can get a higher temp if I want. 

    Prior to today, I only had 3 ---- 3/4 nipples evenly around the bottom, one had  a ball valve, the other two had caps..with just those three I could only get a high temp about 275*

    I have found thanks to those guys about this post, a little higher temps are much better for chickens and such..., so I made some changes to the vents


    2  -- 1" nipples with caps, and one of the other 3/4 hole I added another ball valve..

    So, I now have Four vents

    2  1" nipples with caps

    2  3/4'' nipples with ball valves....

    Im giving it a run right now and I got 300* after half of chimney lit charcoal after about 30 mins in the UDS... I think that got it. THanks BTW Keith :):)
