What are the bolts for that are sticking through the beaten flat lip? Also and chance you would post a close-up pic of how the lid sits on the drum? I have a SS drum that I'm trying to decide what I'm going to use for a lid.

IMO, this is the best way to make a dome lid fit

Rodney- That's the size U-bolt I went with. You don't need the plate, though. I've used the same thing in black oxide, which is loads cheaper, and I use SS acorn nuts on the outside. After it gets seasoned, I don't think anything inside the drum will rust. I'm of the 'build it right, build it once' school, so I usually spring for SS on the outside parts. McMaster-Carr is a great source for all kinds of hardware, and they are usually cheaper, although sometimes you are stuck buying a larger quantity. Titanium UDS parts, anyone?

I agree with the " 'build it right, build it once'" mentality. I'll be using stainless hardware on mine as well. As to titanium? I work almost exclusively with titanium in one of my other hobbies and plan to incorporate some into my UDS build somewhere .

I have 0 tools.....Well I only have screw drivers, hammers, and nails...maybe sand paper.

I have my eyes on a 55 gallon with a removable top, but havent pulled the trigger just yet. I'm calculating costs first.

What tools do I need to buy to build a super simple UDS?

VERY nice setup, hath! I love the covered but extremely handy intake, as well as the huge side table. What is the counter top made from?

I've yet to build my UDS, so forgive the uninformed question... do you notice any problems arising from the intake air all rushing in from one side? Uneven burning? If it was burning unevenly, would you even be able to tell? I've been meaning to ask this question... ;-)

im pretty sure you could get by with just a drill. you would have to buy a hole saw bit to cut the holes though. i saw a fire basket someone used that was sold in the clost section at home depot,( so no welding ). ask your neighbors if you need something you dont have. oh you'll need a tape measure.

I finally got a chance to cut the top of my drum... Cleaned up the edges with the angle grinder and I'm picking up a BGE vent tomorrow. Pallets are piling up and I'm ready to do the burn out this weekend...

Mostly you need to be able to drill a number of holes of various sizes. There are small ones for the bolts or whatever that you're going to use to hold your grates in place, then there are larger ones for intake and exhaust. You can control the size of your intakes with magnets. I suppose if you were going to 'McGyver one, you could punch holes with the hammer and screwdriver, bringing 'ugly' to a whole new level!

If you can beg/borrow/buy a cheap drill motor, Harbor Freight sells step drills for like $14 on sale that will drill all of your various sized holes.
