I spoke to Smokin Monkey & Wade tonight and he is going to update it as soon as possible, so we all know who is doing what.
Hi guys already said hi in the other roll call but thought it good to pop in and say hi here as well.
Hi Dan. Welcome to the forum. I see that you finally managed to post in the group. What was the problem before?

Where in the UK are you from?

For some reason i needed to join the uk group on the full website as the mobile site didn't have the link to join. Im in southampton btw :)
Yes, I have tried using the mobile app and have had a few challenges with it. I just use the main site on my phone browser now.

I can reply to topics via ipad (I'm typing this ).

However if I attempt to post a new thread, or access a PM or subscription then when I hit the relevant button and it opens the further button to press, the second button just does not work.

I have no problem with my Android phone it only occurs on the ipad.
It may be Safari - Have you tried it in the iPAD with the Chrome browser?

Hi Mr Commando,

cool, i have at the moment used a 3/4 hex nipple but was wondering if it would be enough of a draw?, i have 3 1/2 gate valve on the drum bottom, but my build is slightly smaller than a normal 55 gal drum, i have used two smaller drums stacked on top of each other, the internal area is smaller so i down sized the bottom vent to 1/2 ill put up some pictures and that might explain better!!


Used 3 x 3/4 hex nipples in the bottom and one gate valve (thats so I can fix a BBQ guru to it) and did 8 x 3/4 hex nipples around the lid. I put 2 small holes at the top grate area with Silicone bungs to accommodate my Temp probes. I have 3 grates, one just above the coals for a diffuser (Pizza Tray) then a top grate and another a few inches underneath for drip trays or to use for bigger items.

Hi Lee, glad to get another Cumbria on board. I'm just outside Carlisle but thinking you must be out west or Barrow way if you're working at a paper mill ? Your UDS looks good, looks about the size of one of those Weber Smokey Joe / tamales pot conversions they use for tailgating in the states.
