Just so we keep it "on topic" I'm certain that you're talking (thinking) (mostly drinking) about the UDS while consuming said beverages at "bar"!!

Homebrew...now that's another forum in an of itself!! Yet a worthwhile one!

Just to keep it clean...is it a 55 gallon drum down there? Or some kind of metric hybrid? And what's the metric equivelant of 225 degrees in your drum?

Remember now that the elections are over, to do your part in recycling. Those lawn signs for your favorite candidate usually have a nice wire in it. Pitch the sign and use that wire for a handle for your UDS charcoal basket.

Ive been thinking (and drinking) about a UDS for nearly 6 months at da bar.
In Auz we call them 44 gallon drums or 44s, they seem to be a bit smaller then the ones I see you guys using.
225 F is 107 Celcius, most meat thermometers here are marked in both farenheight and celsius so no probs with converting,
cant wait to do some cooking, Kangaroo ribs? kangaroo roast?

Cheers Steve.

The dome lids are 22" weber kettle lids. They are hit and miss on fitting drums. Local drums require bending lip on lid. I found that a Kingsford lid fits without modding it. Swampb cuts a section off a kettle and sets it on drum lip.



So it measures 22 inches or it a little bigger?

I don't know the actual name, I went into the shop at work and told them what I wanted to do and they handed it to me. I call it a big-ol fat wire brush.

You can make it fit, I used pliers to straighten the curve of the Weber Lid. Then I placed it over the Rolled top of the UDS and used a rubber mallet to fit it around. My Weber lid will fit alone on the UDS and seals pretty good, but I feel better using the Drum Clamp with a quick grip c-clamp to get a perfect seal while I am smoking.

I think you just have to sort-of wing-it a little bit on the lid situation. I have an old Weber lid and had to bend it out around the rim with pliers to make it fit right...took a few tries. I think from what I've seen, read here drums are like women...all a bit funky in their own way so you can either bend them a bit and do some cooking or get frustrated...and that's not good.
No absolutes with the UDS...seems to me from reading this that they all have their own personality and you just have find what yours is and use your imagination from there.

22...22 1/2 whatever it takes!

See the thing is I will have to do a lot of looking to find one lid so just trying to get a feel on what grill to look for? I am thinking the uniflame walmart one jarrykr tells me they are about 22 5/8 where my barrel is right at that mark. But thats new want to pick something up used if I could (cheaper)

Got the drum? Throw it in the back of your truck, pull up to walmart and ask to try lid. Then you will know.

Or you could just cut off the rolled lip of the drum
