I have not given thought to extras such as handles, but it will have a bottle opener.
Oh, and Hi - great forum. I think I enjoyed reading about ABT's, Armadillo Eggs, Chicken lollipops, and boink balls almost as much as the UDS.
I wouldn't bolt wheels to bottom. Eventually you will have to clean grease/sludge out and the bolts will hinder cleaning.
Handles help if moving drum and I bungee my weber lid to them for transport.
Expanded metal is good for grate but is more expensive than replacement grates. Plus I spin my grates sometimes and exp... would be more difficult.
Gotta read more, Some "Boink" with their Balls and lts make "Moink" (Moo + Oink) Balls.
