First off, no two UDS' s cook the same.

A lot of it depends on how big you make your basket and then it depends on if you fill it or not.

I put my grate 8" down from the top. That put it about 14" above my basket. My basket will hold about 30 pounds of lump, so I've never filled it. I did put 20 pounds it for a 18 hour brisket cook witnout any problems ( didn't use all of tbe coals eitber).

If you use a webber lid, you can put your grate closer to the top.

Dont worry too much about it. Build it....then learn how yours works. It will be fine.
