    stainless is good but I don't know that you need a tap on it.
    I guess I don't believe in pans in my UDS either.

    Fish - usually open head drums are used. The ones with the lid that comes off. Some have ground the closed drums around the lip to let the top come off. Check flea markets or any place that might have used food grade or used oil drums.

    Keep asking questions if that didn't answer or if you have other questions.

    Enjoy the forum buster.

    I have posted these in a few places, but thought that this was probably the most appropriate place for them. Gives you a nice clean 3D look at a basic UDS

    Thanks for the pics they helped but the drum I got did not have a top that came off so I had to cut it open. On this UDS I have a lid from a weber. I can get more drums like this and I am going to build one for a frined what can I do then.
    Thanks

    Somebody posted a pic of how to grind the edge off a tight head drum and get a clean edge as well as be able to use it for a lid. they even had pix. I can't find the post. Maybe someone else can and psot a link for you.

    There is a way to do it, but I recommend finding a source for unlined open head drums.

    I have made all of mine with drums that have removable lids. It makes life so much easier. If you can find one, I highly recommend it. I have paid as much as $40 (brand new, never used, unlined, drum with removable lid) and as little as FREE (same thing as $40, except this one was 'damaged' and had to be 'thrown away')

    Here is a link to a discussion re: cutting the lid off a closed in drum.
