Great idea using the little wsm ring, Michael. I wouldn't go any other way on a big wsm for shorter cooks.
By the way, what's the advantage of lighting with a torch? I used one all the time to light my old UDS, but I usually just dump about a chimney's worth on top in my little wsm. I use so much lit from the beginning since I usually load it up and use water in the pan.
