Is the Uniflame the grill with the hinged lid? If so I have seen at least one build using it, hinges and all. Looked pretty cool.

Lot's of people have used them, it's in the Mother of all threads. Do a search at the bottom on Uniflame lids for UDS.

I use the uniflame lid on my uds. It originally was a little too small for the drum so I flattenned the edge all the way around and it sat on the drum nicely. The hinges did not work though for me....someone with more motivation could find a way to make them work I am sure. The original seal was ok but got a lot better after several cooks and some grease build up. I use the drum at least once a week....and the lid has held up well for me.

that is what i have. it is not a great seal. I flattened it out, and then bent it around the drum on half of it, the other half is still flat. then i clamp it down with a couple clamps and it works pretty good.

If you have a welder or know a welder, you can also weld a strip of steel around the inside of the drum, creating a smaller diameter, slightly raised ridge for the lid to sit on.

If you want a better seal, try buying the narrowest wood stove door rope repair kit you can find. Use JB Weld rather than the included glue to attach the rope around the lid.
