Default Uds dent

I was given a barrel to use on my uds build but it has a dent in it Down low. Won't effect the cooking grates that I can tell. Will it mess anything else up as far as airflow or anything? Should I look for another barrel?

When I picked up a refurbished 55 gal drum it came with a couple of minor, but somewhat noticeable dings. Not perfect, I was able to bang those out.

It's not gonna affect cooking characteristics, but if it bothers you, pound it out with a ball peen hammer. Thats what I did with mine and it was a huge dent with a crease about a foot long. Looks fine now.

+1 pound it out if it's going to bother you.

As long as it does not change the way the lid seals you should be OK. I use small hammers and dollies to remove dents. Steve.
