Wait a minute. Norcoredneck just posted a video showing that he cut the top out of a closed head drum with a drum deheader on the top of the drum, not below the bead on the side of the drum! Let's not try and re-invent the wheel here.
I guess I'm just not getting this through my thick skull.
Let me try this again:
If I get an open end drum, I can use the drum lid that comes with the drum (with the bung holes) OR
use a Weber, Kingsford (Masterbuilt) or Uniflame dome lid? Correct?
