Check what lengths of threadded pipe are available at your local hardware store and don't be afraid to experiment. If you like to cook at 225, you may find a shorter pipe works better, and if you like to cook hotter maybe a longer pipe. Try a few pre-cut lengths and give it a shot. I run a weber lid on my uds with no pipe and while I typically run the vent wide open there have been times when it was really cold and windy that I had to close them off by about 30% when the temp started to fall from too much drafting. So in short, there is no ideal length that covers every situation - try a few out and see what works best with your uds.
