UDS 2 and 3 will have a Charbroill lid (see pic). For the barrels I found they are a perfect fit. use whatever works. I'm using the grates for my baskets and the handles as well. I paid $30 ish for each used.
I don't like the cheapy vent that they use but I might block off the vent with a circle of metal and go with drilled holes like a flat lid which will remove any hot spot problems or try a large chimney as close to center as possible. Maybe cut out the chimney hole using the old vent location.
