Yup. Go the flange route. I used the lid from a weber kettle knock off from walmart. I think I bought my aluminum strip at Lowes. You may be able to find it cheaper someplace else, but I was just going for convenience. Bending and attaching was a bit of a challenge. The strip was just rigid enough, that I couldn't do it in one piece. I think in the end, I cut it in 3 pieces to make it easier to work with. Just dry fit everything first. Keep the speed clamps handy! You may need to modify the lip on the lid (ahem... hammer) to fit over the lip, but it works like a charm. Lastly, I went as far as to seal the gap around the flange (exterior) with food safe, high temp silicon. Nice seal.
