Just wondering what others have done in regards to a lid for the UDS. I built mine over a year ago and have been wanting to change the drum lid to a dome style lid instead. I bought a grill today that had a 22.5" diameter, but the lid is a little too small for the UDS. Thoughts or suggestions welcome. Do they sell 23" grills? I haven't seen one. Also, I am wanting to keep the lid as is, an off the shelf item so it can be interchangeable (if buying a grill). Thanks!
Thanks guys. I'm going to have some guys at my company take some scrap and weld it to the inside of my drum to make a lip for the new lid to "catch" on to. I then want to add a second rack a few inches below the lip. That should give me about 6 inches between racks, and >2 inches between the highest grate and the lip. With the space in the lid, I should be able to hold quite a bit.
