Some will say that using a diffuser of any kind is sacrilege, and that you're not making "true" BBQ if you use one. After several cooks without a diffuser, I added a large stainless bowl to my UDS, and find that I get better results and flavor. The flavor is more like my WSM, and the family prefers that profile over the un-diffused UDS.

My bowl is mounted just below the lower grate. I use it dry, no water or sand. I just wrap it in foil for easier cleanup.

Everyone has a preference, one way or the other. Give one a try and decide what you like.
