Default New UDS Smoker Lid design looking for input.

The nice folks at Toledo Metal Spinning have decided to go ahead with the design and building of lids that will fit on 55 gal drums. I have a picture below to review. I have also attached the PDF document that they sent to me. they would like your feed back. Please email Jeff Earley at JEarley@toledometalspinning.com. Thank you for your assistance.

The only problem I see is that a 55 gallon drum doesn't have a standard size. With my drum, a weber kettle lid fit like a glove with a little grinding on the outside rim of the drum, but on my friend's UDS, the same lid wouldn't fit at all.

If they make the edge lip wide enough it could fit multiple size drums. +\- 1/4 so 1/2" difference.

The drawing shows 1.5"?

I'm not a UDS guy, but I think the design drawings show a 22.75" ID and a 24.25 "OD, a delta of 1.5 inches or an approximate 0.75" lip all the way around. Might that be enough?

Edit: the detail actually has a drawing taking into account metal thickness showing a 0.61" lip all the way around.

I like the idea if it is not too terribly expensive. I love my flat lids though, sorry. They seal so good and I don't have leakage all over the outside like some of the weber lid UDS's I have seen.

Nice, the dome lid adds a lot of extra space. Can't imagine smoking any quantity of meat with a flat lid.

I hope it works out.

Still a fan of the flat lid because it's made to fit the drum. Secondly i'm a fan of taking a spare flat lid...cutting the middle out and welding the outside ring to a Weber lid. The only challenge is welding a soft metal with the outside ring.

It's about time someone is making these lids for 55 gallon drums :) I'm excited.

I wouldn't pay more than $50 for it though.

I guess it depends on what you mean by quantity. For the super bowl I did three 6 lb butts and 2 racks of pork ribs on one rack with a flat lid. Had this been on my new UDS I would have had a second rack that would have been available for more as my new one has dual racks.
