Hey, I am adding 2 vents to my ProBBQ and I didn't get a large enough bit yesterday... Will this work to drill through it? The other problem I had was that when I was predrilling small holes I didn't get the center of the hole on them. Is that a problem? I can't use a hole saw as to find out would just be too expensive. Or should I just stick with a regular one like the 2nd link and will the fact I didn't center the original hole be a problem also?

I'm not going to buy a Unibit as they're expensive

This is what I'm looking at using???

Looks to me like those are wood drill bits and you probably need a metal bit.
Harbor Freight Tools has a 3 piece step drill set for $9.99

Ditto,

Those are very nice wood bits.

The variable bit would be the trick.

luckily i work at a car dealership where we have drill bits for metal and hole saws for metal. they really are not that expensive, and harbor freight is good for the occasional use. I would go with them. also check out your local pawn shop, alot of good deals can be had there.

so I'm late on this thought train -- are you guys having trouble getting your frontiers to decent temps? This weekend I had to pull 1/2 my meat and put them in my offset as I couldn't get my frontier over 206 degrees. After removing 1/2 the meat and one layer of racks, it was going at 215ish.

It was dissappointing, in the past it ran around 230. When I opened the door a bit, it'd flare up and get warmer, but too much heat escaped through he door.
