DM, I have one like the basket you have that also has two enclosed solid sides. I originally made it for a small offset I have and found out it works just fine in my UDS. Purrrrrrrs like kitten! It's up off the bottom of the barrel 2 1/2 inches. Three inches might be better. Let us know how it all works. Drum looks good btw.
