Does anyone have an answer to the OP? That would be better. A 22.5 inch weber Smokey mountain Top on a UDS.? Don't want to get rid of a WSM top, want to put it to use.

Yes, as a matter of fact I did read the original post.
And tried to show with pics the reasons a WSM lid will not fit. Now if someone else has any ideas, I'd like to see them. I have one idea, but its just a brain fart.

A kettle lid fits over the bowl, and a WSM fits into the center section and will not fit its own base. A kettle lid will fit the base of a WSM.

So to answer the original question - IMO, No - the WSM lid will not fit or be a suitable lid for a Drum Smoker.

What part of my response in thread #10 don't we understand (besides not wanting to trade)?

just sayin'

I hear yeah swamp and I appreciate your responses. Trade really? Thought up you were joking. I don't think the shipping costs would be worth it.

Here is something for you to consider-

Since you already have the 22" WSM lid, check with Weber to see how much it would cost to buy a center section, bowl, everything to make a smoker-it will be the best pit on your deck. It might cost almost the same as a new one, but you won't be disappointed. You never know?

I'll bet you can sell the lid on craigslist for $75, there are guys out there like me that have had warranty issues (like my out of round center section that I converted to a rotisserie) I could use the lid on my center and set it on a Performer or kettle. Yea shipping would be a $$$ pita.

Go simple on the Drum, check out the Big Drum Smoker site and look at the various cook pics. All mine are BDS clones and I couldn't be happier with the design.
