Hi guys - I'm hoping you can help me out with some advice. I did try the other UDS thread but it dropped off so I'm hoping this will lead me in the right direction.

The drum I have is 34" tall. I am using 3 - 3.50in bolts as feet for the fire basket. So the bottom of the basket will be around 3.25in from the bottom of the drum. Going 24 in up from there puts me at 6.75in from the top of the drum. Is that too close to the top for a two cooking grate setup? Lower grate would be at 6.75" from the top and the upper would be .5" from the top.

Can I go any closer to the fire basket than the suggested 24" min or can I use shorter bolts for the feet of the basket?

Thanks for the help.
