Another good option is using a cheap grate where the insert would fit and put a clay saucer on it. You can foil it for easy clean up and it's a great heat sync.
I do plan to have a diffuser I was just worried about grease collecting in the bottom and being a mess. If grease drains pretty good I think drilling would be a better option. I just want to be able to get higher temps in the 350 range and was wondering if the holes method affects temps.
