I can positively state a riser does restrict some air flow. Does it matter, depends on what you want to do with your UDS. Just yesterday I did another test on mine. 10-12 degrees out, windy, single digit temps, snowing. Both 1 1/2" risers removed ( just twist them out) I was at 600 degrees, put em both back in, temp stopped climbing and settled back to 525/550 deg. Removed em and temp went back to 600 degs. Then I removed the lid, put a pizza, temp dropped to 450. I cooked 2 pizza's 12 minutes each about. During the first I reinstalled the risers for a couple minutes, just because and the temp settled at 500, removed the risers and temp was at 550 when removing the first pizza. My 2 risers, one is 16 inches, the other 12 inches. Also you have to have exhaust control if your shooting for higher temps. I have been playing with that also from the flat lid to the dome lid. I found it easier to work on the drums if you have a 2 wheeled wheel barrel, lay the drum in the wheel barrel it holds the drum at a decent height to work on for drilling , welding etc.

My grate for the defuser is 18 inches up from the bottom of the drum.

One more question. Sorry if it sounds stupid. Will any 22.5 kettle lid fit the drum or does it have to be a weber? I can not find any of any brands at all but can buy a new off brand kettle for around 25 dollars. Thanks

Depends on the drum, however the lid off the 22.5" BBQ Pro Kettle that Home Depot sells will work.....as pictured above on Ebijacks UDS. I test fitted on on the Weber grills to verify.
