Sorry guys, i'm new here and haven't managed to trawl all of this epic thread yet so if this has been addressed I apologise: how important is the shape of the charcoal basket? I planned to use a slightly dished mesh (10#) that is quite sturdy and made of stainless. Is this likely to cause me any problems? I was gonna use it as this is a basic as can be UDS build from whatever I can lay my hands on.

Got drum, solid top though, and tonight picked up a Weber 22" that I found on CL. Gradually getting the parts together to start the build!

Probably asked, so forgive me, but since my drum is a solid top, how is the best way to cut the top out, so the Weber lid will fit the best?

Tks in advance!

deadanddripping, my charcoal basket is square and my UDS makes some great que. I think the most important things are capacity and air flow. If both of those are good, the shape doesn't matter.

Take a look here. This may be your best bet.

I'd check the fit first...my drum was a closed top, all I had to do was grind the top ring down some for a snug fit. The top ring on a open top drum is massive compared to a closed top.

I used a recip saw with a metal blade and just ran it along the inside diameter of the head. I got a little impatient in a couple of spots, so there were a few irregularities, but a hammer knocked those down quick enough and a quick hit with a grinder made sure there were no sharp edges.

For the lid, I flattened out the lip on a Weber dome, positioned it on top of the drum and carefully re-lipped it to fit the drum. Now, it's so tight it almost "snaps" into place like a tupperware lid.

Slid it on top tonight. Looked like I may be able to do as you explained.

Decisions....Decisions.....

Here is how mine is setup after breaking out the grinder and the welding machine on it.

I wanted a domed lid for several reasons but did not want to cut up or beat up my 22-1/2” Weber. Using ideas I found in this MOAUDS thread from several posters, I cut the lip from the drum lid with a pneumatic cutting wheel retaining a 1” rim all the way around. The lid from a 22-1/2” UniFlame grill from Wallyworld fit snugly inside the lip ring with some minor persuasion. Man, the metal on that cheap lid is thin. I was afraid it would blow right through if I tried to spot weld it to the ring; finally ended up using some medium temp brazing rod to attach it.
