This is something I have been thinking about as I have not cooked a big slab of meat in my UDS yet. My charcoal basket does not have an ash catcher pan on the bottom. I haven't decided if I want to add one yet or not. One reason I'm thinking about not adding the pan is so I can leave a thin layer of ash in the bottom of the drum to absorb some of that grease.
