Next.. start making holes for the vents and rack, and then to the lid. Still unsure exactly how I will end up doing it...
Assuming your drum did not come with a lid, check craigslist. You should be able to find a weber kettle to use. I had to flatten the lip of my weber lid and then persuade it to fit the lip of the drum. Not to bad really. You will have a few spots that are not absolutely perfect but I was surprised at how well it seals.
