I used a 17 inch cheap pizza pan I drilled holes into. Then adjusted to try to even out the heat. It's not perfect, but works real well when needed. I use it for when I do wings and a few other things. If I'm doing greasy food like chickens , pork butts etc ( I want to keep the drippings) I use a drip pan. My basket is 3 inches off the bottom ( 4 inches on my other drum..still testing) 17 inches round ( Weber 22.5 coal grate) 8 inches high sides. Bolts are at 15 inches up from bottom. I use 6 inch carriage bolts for legs for my grates with the flat lid. 8 inches with the dome lid.
