Default Uds Lids...

I use water heater pans I buy at ACE Hardware. They cost about $18-$20 or so. The 24" Water Heater Pan works great as a lid and you can use use the 20" for an ash catcher. Only use the aluminum pans, not the galvanized ones! We don't want anyone getting sick.

I glued some garage weatherstripping I had to the inside of the lid for a tight seal. Nothing fancy, just used liquid nails and it's held up for two years of Farking at least every other weekend. I screwed on an old handle I had in the garage and wrapped it in parachute cord to insulate the handle. Then I drilled about ten holes in the lid for the exhaust.
