My gut tells me the smallder diameter chamber would burn longer, but I have no real data to support it.

I like wide and short. It doesn't burn any faster as YOU are controlling the burn. The other reason is it keeps the heat source lower in the drum as compared to a taller ring.

I also gotta ask, why would you mod the Weber ring?
