For you guys with open top drums--do you have to use the ring clamp to get a good seal, or do you just set the lid on top.

If you use the clamp, how do you get the !@##$@@@! thing off and on? It takes me forever get mine off and back on. Lac of Wheaties, I guess?

I have to use the ring seal on mine but I have a used drum and the lid is a little bent up.

I am planning on working on getting a weber lid and/or building another lid from the bottom of another drum.

I tried the clamp ring and it was a real PITA. Went a couple of cooks trying to bend the top a bit to achieve the best seal. Not a lot of luck there. Last cook I took some alum. foil and rolled it up loosely, placed it in the channel in the top and squished it on. Sealed really well and with careful removal of the top it stayed in place.

PITA is a fact!! I was thinking about doing some beating of the metal to make a better seal.

Either that or see if I can find a brand new lid....but seeing how I am scoring a new to me weber tomorrow for 10 bucks....I might just use that lid!!

Use a BIGASS rubber hammer. Not as noisy

Got lucky and found the good half of a kettle in a dumpster. Beat the edge flat and them contoured it to the barrel lip. Sanded off the chipped porcelain and painted it and it's good to go! Nice fit, too!

My clamp isn't all that difficult to get off...


I am lazy and haven't tried to fit my 22.5 kingsford lid on the UDS yet. I mean I tried it and it didn't fit... I just haven't gotten around to MAKING it fit! ha
