I drilled out the bottom for now and that seem to work well with the hanging ribs. It also doubles as a safety catch in case I drop the meat, which I've done in my UDS...lol...
But I can, of course, cut the bottom out completely at any time should I decide to go that route and run it with no diffuser.
