Default UDS Charcoal Basket, intake & paint Question

Howdy folks...


Im gonna have my UDS finished tomorrow and was thinking about the charcoal basket.

Found this old 18" Weber Kettle Bowl in the garage and thought this would be mighty fine.

What do you think ? Diameter fits perfect, Charcoal grate is included and i thought about putting a stainless steel bowl below it to catch the ashes.

The top of the kettle is 12" high and my lower grate is 28" from the bottom of the barrel. Hope the distance is okay ?

Also, i have a single 1" air intake. Will that be enough or should i add another one ?

I have two cans of high temp paint in black but i want some flames in yellow and orange too. Can i use normal paint on top of the high temp paint or will it start to burn/flake ? Cant get any other high temp colours than black and grey atm.



The lid fits perfectly tight









Thanks,

DM
