    Well, yeah....that would work. I was talking about that Rustoleum hi temp grill paint. I use that but can't really tell a difference.

    So then Tim, in your experience, do you think regular enamel paint will hold up to the temps my drum is likely to experience (I figured max air temps of 300 or so degrees, maybe 250 degrees for the walls of the barrel?)

    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.

    Iconcur with Bubba as long as you never burn it with the lid off. Be sure to resist the urge to "just burn up the rest of the charcoal left in it".

    Looking like I'll finally have some time this weekend to start my UDS build. What's the best way to attach the ball valves to the drum? Is there a particular type of ball valve that works best? Do I need to use some sort of sealant? Thanks!

    Use a pipe nipple screwed tightly into the ball valve and use two conduit nuts to tighten it all up. Try to get them tight as possible as they tend to come loose with heating and cooling.

    Make sure it's a 3/4" "Full Port" Ball Valve

    What are the other types of 3/4" ball valves Brian?

    I believe that Kevin and I used a brass reducer on the inside that screwed into the ball valve on the outside. I think we also used some high temp rtv sealant ( silicone) between the two both as a thread locker and a sealer. I think it was rated to 650 and we didn't figure it would ever get that hot.
