One last noob question... These are the barrels I referenced in my prev post and am thinking about going to pick up: http://kansascity.craigslist.org/grd/3184590584.html
Notice that there is a ridge located near the top of the barrel? Is this going to be problematic for my build? On most of the UDS I see the ridges are closer to the center... I am worried that the screws holding the top grate might have to go in at an angle or it may be problematic due to the location of the ridge
Not an issue if you use these dim's or a variaiation. might be if you use a dome depends on the location of your first rack...
