I've got 2 barrels ready, and started on one....however, I see so many people have kettle lids without having to cut out the bottom part of the kettle and using that to set their lid on. What's the trick here? I can use the drum lid, but I'd like the height of the Weber lid... Can anyone tell me how to get the Weber Kettle lid (22.5) to fit on the 24" barrel??? Here is a pic of what I started on for one of the barrels. It was a closed barrel (which for some reason are way easier to find than open). We plasma cut out the top of a closed drum, and then plasma cut a ring out of an old disc blade, and welded it to the lid. It fits nicely, i just have to decide if I want the blade ring facing up or down (dunno which will seal better yet) Here it is with the lip angled down Here it is angled up Here is the rest of the disc blade, whcih I most likely will use somehow in the bottom of the drum to keep the heat from getting to the bottom. Any suggestions are always appreciated!
