    Default Weber Flange Mod

    Here is what I do with my open drums for a better seal when using a Weber kettle lid or rotisserie ring. I cut about 2" off the lip of the bottom of a rustbucket kettle and slip it in the top of the drum and the lid fits securely instead of balancing on the drum. Remove it and I can use the drum lid. Not all drums are created equal, and some may require a bead of high temp silicone on the flange. This also helps holding the EZ-Que or Weber rotis ring in place. The only smoke loss I have using these are at the spit cutouts.











    I do the same with closed drums- I'll cut inside the bead and leave @1/8" of the top and slide the flange firmly (rubber mallet) into the opening, this eliminates the lid sitting on the band and having grease and condensation streak the outside of the drum.









    Hope this helps! It works for me.

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.

    I'd be careful about using those Zep Chemical drums for cooking. Their company is a competitor of mine and I understand that they only use evil chemicals.

    Steam cleaned and burnt that Zep drum out, I've since gotten a line on closed drums that contained Olive oil and some open drums that had latex paint in lined bladders if I ever get drum build deprived.

    Are you sure you burned and steam cleaned all the "Evil" out?
