Whoa. That's a monster. If you weren't already in a warm climate it'd make a great insulator "sleeve" for a 55 gallon drum.

I have an 85 gal drum that I made into a BIG UDS. Mine also has a 26" internal. I guess the 96 gal is taller. I was able to install two grates at about 7" from the bottom to the top grate. Then from the top grate to the flat lid, I have about 8" of space. I love that thing. It is AWESOME!!

Yes, it's just taller than the 85. It's 42 1/2" tall. I was figuring on 7" or 8" spacing for two racks.

Gathering parts...build should be happening soon. I have a draft door from a large BGE for my intake. I have the 26" Grillmark grates coming from Amazon and I ordered two 6" velocity stacks off eBay for the exhaust. (Pic below) My question would be placement. Would it be better to put them side by side to the outside of the lid? One on each side of the lid? Both in the middle of the lid? This drum is farking huge. It is taller than my 55 gallon drum with a dome lid. I may have to get a step stool to put the charcoal basket in.

I would put each one 4-1/2" from the center, diametrically opposed.
