Santa was good to me. He got me a cheap 22 1/2 in grill, and a gift card to Lowes. My drum is at the sandblaster (hopefully will be done tomorrow) if i get it back by the weekend I plan on doing my build on New Years day. I have three pallets ready to burn it out, and just got back from Lowes, with all the hardware I need for the build. The lid on the 22 1/2 grill is a little shy of the 23 inches OD i will need, but it should be easily modified with a hammer and channel locks. I am going to try that and if I need to make it air tight i will use some high temp silicone on the rim. I will try to take pics as I go. Most likely won't get painted until spring, as it is too cold outside right now to paint, and I have nowhere inside to paint. Do I need to worry about the drum rusting between now and spring?
