It is a Masterbuilt and not a webber…. will it work?
I picked up a couple of these at 1/2 price ,clearance end of Summer. The lids are a little smaller than a Weber and won't fit right on a drum, so you have to use flat-bar ring.

I was wondering about some of the paint jobs on your uds's. I see some pretty awesome designs and some look like they have decals on them. I'm sure they can't be plastic decals so what are they? Not an artist at all but want mine to look decent so any help is appreciated!

Incredible thread. Amazing information. I'm looking forward to building my first. Can't wait for some of this snow to clear. Anyone up in Canada? I saw some good posts from H20loo about insulating the UDS and the need for the oldman side pipe....good insight. Thanks very much!

Why are so many guys using closed top drums that you have to cut top or bottom out? Open top drums are easy to find around here.

Believe me, there is nothing as frustrating as studying these threads for nights on end then trying to find a drum, sometimes any drum, in a non-industrialized part of the country. I ended up paying expensive freight from another part of the country.

A dome lid off a Weber grill won't fit an open top drum. A closed top with a flat lid works great if you only want 1 rack.

I didn't put a decal on the one I built, but if I had to guess, a decal of some sort shouldn't be a problem. The outside walls of these things really don't get all that hot, in my opinion.

.................................................. ...................

I have flat top 3 racked UDS myself for 2 1/2 yrs now ---- the bottom or 3 rd generally gets a water pan but I've regularly cooked on 2 racks with flat top.




Top Rack





How to make Weber lids fit: (not my UDS pictured)- top 2" of another drum or just 1-2" flat bar
