I decided on half the original volume, and a little bit taller to keep a very compact fire. What I came up with was a ring that is 6" tall with a diameter of 10.7", this is exactly half the original volume. I made it out of expanded metal, so if you cut a piece 33.61" long x 6" wide, when rolled it will give you the 6x10.7" dia ring.
Here's my original post;
Thanks for posting pics of your fire ring! That is very nice!

I've gotten the (IMO) few obligatory cooks with kingsford blue out of the way, next two smokes I'm startin in with my preferred (RO) lump. Curious what temp/duration I can hold with it wide open and full of lump.
Please post back here with your results.
