Default "Different" Handle for UDS Lid

I just ordered one of these from Home Depot. I figure if it doesn't work as a lid handle, I can use it for something else. It was less than $2 shipped to my door. I also ordered a 36" one to mount on my deck by the grills/UDS and hang a towel on. Both were only $5 shipped. Not bad for Stainless Steel.



They are today's "Deal of the Day" at Home Depot.90% off all Bath Safety Items.

Nice but won't it get a little hot to handle ( no pun intended) bare handed?

Thanks for the heads up! I just ordered two for my BWS cart. $4.10 for 18" style.

Thank you for sharing this brother, I've been looking at these for quite a while trying to justify the price. Just ordered 8 each of the 18", 24", and 36". That should be enough to "re-handle" some of my cookers with a few left over for a new project.

I dunno maybe. But at two bucks, I'll give it a try and let you know.

I use gloves and lift by the outer rim. I'll forget the gloves often with no problem. Most of the time I'll reach to the flue and lift. Never liked the idea of a handle on thin metal. I do use gaskets on the lids so they are not stuck though.Steve.

That's what I do now. More often without gloves than with. What it really boils down to is I couldn't pass up a 90% off deal. Even if it was on bath safety supplies.

I'm a bit confused... wouldn't these be way too big for a UDS lid?

It might be. The lid is less than 18" across so it will fit. It may not look right so I may or may not use it. But for less than $2 shipped, I have nothing to lose. I'll use it for something in the garage if it doesn't go on the UDS.

Too bad you are not local to me, I could get you them for scrap price (about 53 cents a pound)

Can't argue with that logic. Update the thread if you use it! I can't because my UDS has evenly spaced pipe nipples as exhaust

Too big to use as a handle





But like I said, I knew I could use them for something. Makes a great rack to hang a towel on.
