Do u have an ash pan down there? My plan was to pull basket out after so many hours and pull the ash pan out quick and dump it set back in and set the basket back in etc. Would that get me by for now? And how long do I estimate I could cook for with that set up before it began to choke?
When I use a diffuser it sits about 2"-3" above the top of the charcoal basket. AS for my cooking racks it really depends on what I am cooking. I have a system that allows me to adjust the racks in 2" increments from the top of the barrel all the way down to the bottom of the drum. Of course the charcoal basket limits that.
If you haven't run your UDS yet I'd recommend firing it several times between now and your comp to get a handle on how it performs. Its easy to overshoot temps, and once you do its hard to get them back down again. Get yourself some chickens, spatchcock them and do a few practice runs.
