My drum is/was a 55 gal. food grade barrel. Do you guys modify your weber lids to make them fit? Any suggestions?
You can bend the rim of the drum in, or pull the lip of the lid out....either way, go slow. I recommend working the drum, in case you need the lid to put back on the OTS.
Very few drums accept the OTS/OTG lid unmodified. I was lucky enough to buy one from a guy who tested it.
