UDS Lid Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I want to build a UDS. My buddy brought me a barrel, but it is a closed top (no lid, I have to cut it open). Before i spend time cutting it open, I need to ensure I can get a lid that will work. 


Does anyone know if a Weber 22.5 lid will work, or do you have any other suggestions?

There's lots of threads on that out there.  A Weber lid could very well fit but worst case and what many people do is get a strip of aluminum at Lowes and fit it around the inside of the drum about 1/2" above the lip.  You can rivet it in or bolt it in place.

Actually, you are lucky. If you are careful when you cut the lid, you can cut it exactly so that the weber lid fits. Add a rope gasket, and you would be good to go.
