Grate hights

Discussion in 'UDS Builds' started by joshgrillinlawn, Nov 20, 2015.

  1. Howdy y'all, I'm in the planning stages of building a UDS. I got the drum, and I'll probably just drill 3 1" holes and use magnets for the intake.
    So the question is, if I use a heart diffuser, would that lower the 24" difference from grate to fire basket?
    Thanks guys.

    If you put a shelf lower then I would suggest you'd need to monitor the temps at that level and adjust your air intake accordingly. I don't see why a good diffuser wouldn't allow that. The only other thing is the lower the shelf the less likely your meat is to be hanging around in a smokey environment. You will probably still get plenty smoke flavor from it tho, unless you like it SMOKEYYY.
