Yup: I have a short "inner barrel" for a fire basket that I elevate just below the top grate. Here's pic's:

no pictures but I hang my charcoal basket on my grill using three S shaped pieces of clothes hanger wire. This works good for burgers and sausages before I drop the basket down and load up the drum with a long and slow cook. Using the UDS as a grill is hard on the exterior paint !!!

Second that...I learned it the hard way. And even the additional supports don't fully solve the problem. I had to go out and buy the Webers after a couple of cooks.

Thanks Nocordredneck. You wouldn't believe how hard I tried to figure out the lid deal! LOl. The pan is a solid aluminum pan and not galvanized. I hope no one ever tries to 'que in galanized anything. (Leaded Brisket is not good for you!) I'll be stealing my sister in-laws camera and get a pic of the lid on the forum. It is a great substitute lid for those who can't find an "Open head drum" or want to fork out for the weber lids.
As far as intake valves go I've just been running two 1" draft holes with electrical plates for draft covers. While it works fine you really have to watch the temps closely. I'll be installing a ball valve this weekend.

Heathen:

A source for your aluminum drip pan would be appreciated.

Ok here is my current idea.
I got one of these:
http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...03171+10023001
The handle can be removed fairly easily. Once removed it leaves the attachment point that provides one point for the basket to rest on. I add 2 bolts through the side holes at 1/3 points around the perimeter. Now it sits on what was my charcoal pan for my ECB. I now have an ash pan with elevated (slightly) basket for charcoal. It probably needs a ring to contain coals if piled up more than 2-3 inches. The ash can fall through the holes in the bottom to the old ECB ashpan.
Am I crazy?
The picture is just the picture from the borg's site if you don't want to deal with the link.

Are you crazy? No
will it work? I don't think so.
Won't hold enough charcoal without sides and will probably melt the pan.
Best way is a charcoal basket, keep reading........

Bbq Bubba,
You may be right. But be'in the hard headed one that I am, I am going to try it anyway. It may melt the pan, but it is high grade chinese stainless, How could that possibly melt? :-)
Adding sides (if there is a bottom left) should solve the enough charcoal part.

if its stainless it will do fine. You still need some vertical mesh or something though.

I use something similar for smoke drying hot peppers
http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...atalogId=10053

It might have more capacity than the round pan

The reason I choose the round one is because it sits on my coal pan from the ECB just right. This gives me an ash catcher and raises the coals off the floor of the drum about 4". If I had a metal 5 gallon can I would cut the bottom off for an ash catcher. Hmmm, maybe I can find one.
In the spirit of the UDS, I am trying to use what I have around the house and buy as little as possible.

Does the ECB pan have holes in it?
If not, she won't burn, gotta have air, preferably coming from the bottom to keep that fire goin!
