They have open head, tight head, different bung options..

This is their site:

I would look for an open head drum. Any 55 gallon drum (open or closed head) will fit a weber rack. An open head drum will give you a built in lid and in my opinion a flat lid looks cooler. A closed head you will have to find a weber lid for or make your own. Depending on your fabrication skills and access to welders ect, you should probably look for an open head with a 2" bunghole in the lid. That will be your exhaust. Some guys cut their own exhaust holes but if the lid already has one built in I prefer to use it.
Yea I still troll around these forums. I just don't get excited about posting pics of my food....:)
