I haven't paid close enough attention to the rotiss, or even thought of addint it to the drum. I may need to see how you have that mounted. Of course a Weber lid does not fit mine, so that may make it tough.

Hi JD,

Your toy box looks cool. Can I ask, how do you control the coals and airflow in your UDS.

Any chance of a coupld of snaps of the inside?

I like the twins, I have WSM myself, I think they look better in a pair Very Happy the problem is I like the look of the Excel and that would ruin the asthetics.

Quick question how do you find the depth of the water pan? I found I was topping it up quite often. Mack sorted me out with a ProQ pan and it's solved the problem.

Ahhhh smoothidea JD. Very Happy

AWG- It's controlled from holes at equal distance just a few inches from the bottom of the drum. JD devised tabs that simply slide to block off the holes to control airflow thus adjusting the temps into smoke range.

Ahaaa. I see them, I completely missed that. I was expecting something bigger and less subtle.

Cheers Doc.

No problem I'm thinking of going that direction on my UDS buy it wil have to wait a few weekends. I use a 3/4 '' ball valve to controll flow on mine and it works great but JD's just looks so smooth.

Look forward the other Pics.

Here are a few shots of the rotisserie mod...nothin' fancy...just a couple of slots on each side of the drum then mounted the bracket for the motor...easy peasy. Very Happy

It was made by a local sheet metal shop for $20.00...I was amazed at the cost...so I ordered another one for the second drum. Very Happy

I did a home made copy but it didn't come out as pretty. I so need to learn to weld. Laughing
