I am trying to figure out how you go from indirect to direct heat on your uds though? isn't it always direct?
I can raise the charcoal basket on my UDS to be about 6 inches below the top grate. I then put coals on one side of it and the food on the other.
Hard to see by this pic but the basket hangs from the top grate bolts and my basket gets inverted.
Versus having the basket sit on the bottom during smoking.
