    I'm using the 3/4" pipe plugs when not in use and so far I've not had a problem. Mine are screwing in tight. I do have a problem on my air intake valves on the bottom that the 3/4" pipe nipple screws out every time I unscrew the cap. I saw somewhere that someone used a hex divided pipe nipple. Plan on getting some next time I'm at the hardware store.

    Cool Weber Lid

    I believe that's a 3" vent. As for the rain getting in. I fitted a vent cover i use when its raining (or snowing, depending where you live !) That usually does a good job keeping the water out.

    I have been thinking of adding a 2nd weber vent disk to my weber top and having 8 holes instead of 4.

    OK-

    I build BDS clones and have Weber lids for all of them. But mostly I only use them when I'm using a rotisserie or Chicken on a throne (extra height).

    One thing I found early on was that when I was cooking whole chickens on the holders was that the one directly beneath the daisy vent on the Weber lid cooked faster and got darker than the rest of the birds. I never had any temp control issues after I started rotating the lid.



    These days when I use a drum for heavy meats, spatched birds or thighs, I always use the drum lid, it just seems to circulate evenly and I'm happier with the results.







    YMMV

    Mr L ... I went forever searching for a weber lid online. If you have a weber and can call them with the number from your grill they may sell you one, but otherwise you will have to do like I did and scour craigslist for a 22.5 weber for cheap and sacrifice it.

    Once I found one I haven't been able to make myself give it up to the drum. Also some knock off grills will work too.

    Good luck and please get involved with the group and have some fun with us.

    In this part of the third rock, Weber lids are scarce as 3 legged chickens ... I would in the future if building a UDS from scratch, spend the $ and buy a new 22.5 and you would have the lid, cooking rack and charcoal grate plus in a scrape the bottom could be modded for a top or sacrificed for what ever.
