Default 85 Gal UDS

Greetings Fellow Pharkers;

Got my NEW 85Gal Drum this week and am planning to have it Sand Blasted while doing the planning and gathering needed supplies. Does someone know where to get 25 1/2" Grills?? I need two of them and I can't get them locally.

Threads for these larger UDS's are few, has anyone else built one????

Have a Great Weekend!!!!!!

I make 85gallon units and weber makes racks for them. I make my own out of 1/4" rod though. Steve.

I've built 5 85s. I use heavy gage expanded metal for grates with one rod welded underneath for support. Still trying to find or figure out how to find or build a dome lid tho. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
