23739 Got wood?? I know I do!! I thought it was funny, they say non hazardous but they had mineral spirits in them? They had plastic lids though so no lids or bands. Hopefully someone can hook me up with a couple? Or, 2 of them are just doners. I will post pics when I'm done to the UDS thread I just didn't want to add any more to it as it all ready is huge.Took me 2 weeks to read the whole thing in my spare time.:biggrin::biggrin:

I probably will, I seem to have a couple buddies all of a sudden that want one too!!
They don't have a liner but if you have lids and bands we can talk.

Weld lids on each on and use them for a dock?

If you really need a lid, just take one of the barrels and cut it around the circumference just above the lower band. After this is done, set it on top of the other one, make sure its square, and then weld a piece of 1/8" by 2" metal around it to form a lip over the bottom barrel. You can use a stove gasket if you can't get it to fit quite right. I have a drum that is made that way although I just got my hands on a free weber lid so its undergoing some surgery at the moment.

Let's see...what could you make with those...

A really big funny hat? No.

I'm sure I'll come up with something practical OTHER than UDS soon.:biggrin:

I'd find a Weber Smokey Joe and and use the lid on the small drum and make a Mini UDS out of it. Isn't Dearborn Heights like Weber Ground Zero? Should be able to find a 22.5" kettle and sacrifice the bottom and do the "flange mod" for the 55 gallon drums.

One 55 gal drum with lid = Niagra Falls! Look in your yellow pages under barrels or drums. It's cheaper than having someone send you them. Most manufacturing plants in your town should have a drum lid.

If the diameters permit, I'd probably play and see if I could use them to insulate a WSM. WSM sitting inside the barrel with ceramic insulation filing the void between the barrel and WSM. Just need to figure out the venting/access for the WSM. t

All you would have to do is cut the bottom off the barrell and place over the WSM. Set it on some pieces of 1 X 2 so air can come from underneath to feed the WSM.
