The kids and I built a couple of these using the Vasconia pots.
We put two grates in each one. The bolts for the top grate are 1.5" down from the top lip, and the lower grate bolts are 5.5" down from the top lip.
This config gives 4" of clearance for each of the grates.
We mounted the thermometer just below the bottom grate.
