Had 4X8 sheet sheared into 6 8"X96" pieces. Will cut into 12 42.5" pieces for rings to go around 18" weber kettle charcoal grate which measures 13.5"dia. Have you noted this thread has over 100,000 views? Cool!
I prefer the coal grate for an 18.5" as oppossed to a 22.5" Weber coal grate for UDS baskets. Tried them both and seems like the 13.5" dia. gets to temp faster.
