Default UDS Lid

Im looking for a dome lid for a UDS that I am about to build. I cant find a weber lid anywhere and was wondering where others have found them? Ive looked at yard sales, craigslist, paper everywhere. I just got a drum to use that was given to me and the only parts I need are the lid, and grates which I will buy this week. So far I have $0 in the drum and all fitings, and the charcoal basket.

Check walmart or Kmart for cheaper 22" Kettles. You can normally buy a whole kettle (with grates and all) for $30-$50. I couldn't find any around here either, so I ended up getting a lid directly from Weber, mainly because the walmart lid wouldn't fit on my drum.

I didn't know or really think that Weber would sell kust a lid for a kettle and I am basically in the same shape. How much do they charge for the lid? I bought a knockoff kettle (floor model) from Lowes the other day for my first build. I'm really thinking I'm going to like it because it is a hinged lid but I also know that it won't last as long as the Weber but I doubt the drum will last that long too so it really doesn't matter.

at a garbage/recycle dump? You haven't said anything about that. I know it's hit or miss. But I found 2 at my local place once.

Keep looking at Craigslist.

Here is a free one listed today in your area (Middle Valley). It may be a 22.5, but they don't say.

I want to say somewhere around $60 shipped. You have to order directly from Weber (just call the support line on the website. They are very helpful).

I went to your local recycle to dump some cardboard a couple days ago and they had one of those cheap knock off weber grills so I ask about it and they gave it to me.

But I am thinking why not just use the flat lid that came with the drum for now and keep looking for a weber or knock off lid, it will show up sooner or later.

When I built mine I bought two new Weber OTSs and cannibalized the lid,
racks and top kettle lip from them. I figured the $80 was a good investment
for new parts.

I lucked out and got some weber lids but in doing research for the future I came across the 'knock offs' from sears/kmart. I went to the partsdirect website, found the grill, and armed myself with the part numbers for the lid, vent and handles. There was no way to order parts online (strange) so I called the 800 number and the nice lady told me I could not order the parts by using the part numbers......I had to have the actual model number from an actual grill to be able to order the parts. That being said - if anyone has one of those grills I'd love to have the model number so I can pretend to own the grill. I'm still curious to see how much the parts would cost. Hard to believe I can't order parts with a part number!!

If you tell weber that you dont want the lid for a weber, they wont sell it to you. tell them you want a replacement lid

Both of my UDS's work great with just the flat lid that comes with the drum. No weber lid needed.

That and the generic kettle lid i bought wasn't even close to fitting...

I'm considering a flat lid model. The only time I use the lower racks are for beans
