Default Which Diffuser Medium do you use in your UDS?

I am just curious what you all use for a diffuser (if any) in your UDS, why you chose it and how it is working out for you.


I am contemplating a 16" perforated pizza pan, for my 18.5" 30 gallon UDS. I can use it as is when I want fat/drippings to fall through to hit the coals for some of that fat vapor flavor, and I can also optionally foil it when I don't want that flavor, and/or to collect grease to make less of a mess. (I used a terra cotta planter base in my Mini WSM but I don't know how much that would help out with my 30 gallon UDS.)

Regardless, for my setup (30 gallon) I do need to use a diffuser because my cooking grate (7" down from top) would be to close to the coals for direct cooking (from what I hear).
