Found a drum company that has:

"Item: DCS55OH
“New” 55-g open-head steel drum / Removable lid / Black w/white top
Price: $56.75 each"

His website says it is 12gauge and 22.5 diameter.
Raw steel interior

Is this a reasonable price? Would my kettle top fit directly on the top or would I have to modify?

Thank in advance with any help!!!
I would say for a clean drum that is not a bad deal. I have burned out a couple and am so over ever doing that again. U-line has drums for right around 100 so I would say buy it. Just my opinion.
I want a Weber 1880.
