It is a Masterbuilt and not a webber…. will it work?

Take a 4.5 " angle grinder with a grinding wheel and carefully grind the outside edge off. You will notice a point where the lid and drum meat each other. once you get down to that point all the way around, a little tap with a screw driver and hammer and the lid will come right off and is still 100% reuseable.
If I could I would. If I don't, it's because I am to lazy!
