Would that work if I would make it 15" high to hold about as much as the 'regular' 13x12 baskets? Another option could be to get a baked clay pot within the UDS as a charcoal basket and make a 2" round hole in the side to fit the 2" pipe that comes from my ball valve. Would that hybrid kamado style help heat and balance, or not?
I think the drum basket will work fine as long as you get enough holes for air. As for size I would make it big enough to hold 10 pounds of charcoal.:D
