i dont see why it wouldnt work, except that for standard sizes buying a used kettle might be cheaper, and then you have a free grill as well.

If you look at the actual sizes. A 24" is actually a 22"
26" is actually 24"
Not the right measurements to fit most drums.
You can get a knock off kettle for around $40 new. Cheaper when on sale. And you get a cooking grate and coal grate. And the bottom of the kettle can be modified to use as a lid. If a used one can not be found cheap.

Iím building a 30Ē UDS so I donít have the luxury of using kettle lids.

If money is no object, I'm sure someone could fab a big dome for your Mega UDS. If your drum has a removable flat lid already, I'd stick with that. Your grate will be very large (26.5"?)- are you wanting a dome lid so you can add a 2nd grate level? If so- that will add a lot of cooking area to your cooker for sure. I'm not talking you out of that- but I don't run 2 grates on my 55 gallon UDS because handling hot, full grates of meat sucks - a royal PITA. Now make the grates 40% (?) bigger and do the swapping... I'd just a soon not.

Can't wait to see how your project turns out.

Grates will actually be 29Ē and fabbed by one of the Shirley boys :becky:

And yeah, sticking with the flat lid for now. Top rack will just be the rib rack and sit 3Ē below the lid.

There is a lip around the outside.

I wonder if the "26 inch", actually 24 would work because of the lip? Or a strip of metal around the outside?

"Grates will actually be 29”" plus "fabbed by one of the Shirley boys" = Those gonna be pretty heavy. If you are going with the top being solely for ribs, you won't have to do much juggling/rotating racks- that's a good thing.

Just picked up the 29Ē round gates Tyler Shirley made for me. Itís top notch in looks and build quality. Itís not heavy at all. About the weight of a pizza pan.

I would have been able to cook my Xmas spread on one grate rather than 3 on my WSM. And would have gotten more sleep before my 17 hour drive across the South. Iím ready to retire the WSM.
