Default Should I start over on my UDS???

Just got a 55 Gallon drum and dropped it off at the maintenance shop at work and had them cut the top off for me. The thing is, they cut around the edge of the barrel about an inch from the top instead of inside the rim of the lid. I did some looking around and didnt see anyone post a similar problem but if there is a thread out there you could point me to that would be great. What I need to know is, can I still make a quality smoker with a tight fitting lid or should I get a new drum and start over? Thanks in advance for all of the Quality information I know will be here

Is there anyway to weld it back on and put a thin piece of flat metal around it to help seal it back up???

Bolt a 2" piece of aluminium flat stock in the drum leave 1" exposed and the top will fit back on for your lid

I think someone in maintenance needs to get the boot.

What blu said will work fine, but really, what were they thinking?
