Default UDS Lid

Where is the best place to pick up a lid for a 55 gallon drum? Does the lid have to be unlined and can you get it with a seal? If so, can the seal handle heat?

Thanks,
Bigbeef24

Never seen lids on their own.

My lid is lined, i never bothered(forgot) to take it off, no ill effects yet.

Lined drums come with a gasket in the lip, i took it out, doubt it would handle the heat in a favorable way, and im not about to try it out, either.

Im having problems with the lid I have now and its not creating a good seal. I get a little smoke coming from the lid. I found a lid on grainger.com but it has a gasket.
SKOLNIK Drum Cover, 1.2mm, White, Lined, With Gasket



Any thoughts or suggestions? Ive read through some of the thread mentioned but there is 708 pages.

Might be easier instead to find a dome lid.

Get a second drum and cut the bottom in the center of the rib and add a band on the inside of the smoker opening so there is a 1 " lip for it to slide over.

Hit up the local big box store and try to find a cheap 22.5" kettle and rip the lid off of it. Take measurements and a tape measure to the store to double check the lid size.

Or check craigslist for someone getting rid of an old 22.5" weber kettle and use the lid off that.

I found a BBQ Pro grill that the lid fits perfect on my UDS.

Th grill model number is: Sears item number: 16314; K-Mart item number: 680-02701244-2.

In the manual, it has the part number for the lid. It is: 200423N. The handle part number is: 220018N; the lid bracket is: 220002N; Lid vent assembly is: 220102N.

The is no part number for the "hardware pack" that has all the screws, washers (plastic and fiber washers).

I could not find the grill part number 16314 on Sears web site, but I'll bet you dimes to dollars that any of the BBQ PRO 22.5" grill lids will work.

I guess they do not stock the 16314 model and that's probably why I only paid $27.99 back in December for it. It was a close out item.

Anyone want to buy a brand new grill minus the lid?
