webergrubbin, I believe you need about 24" from the coals otherwise you would be just grilling instead of smoking. With a diffuser plate, my guess is you could get below that 24" range. All of the drums I have made use (almost exclusively) the original lid that came with it. My recent ones use a lower grate & a upper grate that sits on it with "legs". Good luck with your build and post pron!
