What is the red color on the outside the lip of the drum?
Is this a mod to get the Weber lid to fit?
The gray ring is a piece of 2" steel formed into a ring that is pressed into the inside of the drum, the red stuff is just a piece of rope, to see how a gasket would work. I will put some stove gasket in its place. The weber lid fits perfect like this.
