Oven gasket glued in place

Not a bad fit.

ECB grate holder.

Looks pretty good.

You made it look easy!! I had a hell of a time making my lid/flange assembly work out right. Took me weeks of tinkering. Nice looking drum! Now get it dirty.

Damn! Now I need a donor kettle. Isn't there a box on your driver's license that you can check?

Ok, to each their own, but I think my mod is easier. Although I can see why you guys don't want to take a hammer to a good lid and mess up the porcelin.

You can mash the outer most lip on the weber lid down a bit(maybe half way), drill 4 holes to install 4 bolts with nuts to hold, some furnace gasket and have a lid that sits firm and smoke free from the rim.


Hard to see but the edge has been mashed to halfway flat.

Here the furnace gasket fits nicely in the half mashed channel and around the bolts. The length of bolt I used makes for a very stable lid that sits square(or is it round) on the drum. I'm sure it would work for a weber lid, mine is a SS lid about the same size as a weber lid.

JMHO and experiences..............

1. How do you mash the edge.
2.What do you with the lid while your working on the grate. It seems with the extruding hardware that it would be difficult to set most places, much less hang on the side of the drum.

My solution... lid hangs on drum great...





...but the EVEN BETTER LID is the cheapo Uniflame, which hinges on this version I built when combined with two 1" shelf brackets...







It works so well, I am thinking of modifying the Weber version!

FWIW, YMMV and all other applicable acronyms.
