Default Would a couple of these work for a charcoal basket?

For my uds? Is 12 inches tall enough to hold coals for a long burn?

It might, but there is no info about what gauge it is. I would go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a 12x24 piece of expanded metal.

Should work out for you. My basket is 12 in tall and diameter of about 10 inches. Plus, I have the bottom of my basket 3 in above the ground to give air flow. It will hold enough charcoal to let my UDS cruise at 225 for 13+ hours.

This is the material I used for my basket. I used a 5 gallon bucket as a template to bend around. I used steel pop rivets to fasten it together. 12" high with the floor of the basket 3" up from the bottom. For $9 you can make a couple of them. The thicker gauge stuff is much more expensive.

Info said 18.0 gauge so very doable. I can be made with do welds, just bolts, washers and maybe some heavy wire.

my uds basket is made out of one of those. Cut it in half lenghwise, so you have two 6" x 24" strips. Mount them in a circle pattern to the grill grate bottom. I think my grate was 15.25" in diameter or so? 48" of material overlaps a bit to shore it up nicely. I used bailing wire to attach all the pieces of my basket. It works fine.

Even with a shallow 6" basket, my UDS would cruise 12-14 hours pretty easy.
