Hey all, new to the forum. I've been reading through this thread and some others as I'm in the process of building my first UDS. First off I'd like to say thanks to everyone who's been sharing their knowledge and experience on this. That no doubt helped myself and I'm sure a lot of others from making many mistakes.
I do have one question about the charcoal basket. Is there an ideal size? I picked up a Weber 13 inch grate and attached some expanded steel to it. It didn't come out too bad, but I wasn't sure if a bigger diameter, or smaller, burns more efficient? Or does it really make a difference? Thanks.
