On Bbq Bubba's basket, over at TQJ, his basket is 8" tall and about 19" wide. You would need to make up for the volume lost in the center of the doenut to get the burn time you would from a traditional style basket by making the doenut, or whatever you want to call it, taller.

On edit:Bubba's ring cant be 19" it is a 8" X 48" piece overlaped about 1-1/2 - 2". My ring is 14".
This is good...thanks. Actually not thinking of doing this with UDS but I also have a Weber 22.5 that i was considering this for.
