The 12" one will get to the middle. The "R" part of the number means that it can be re-calibrated.

I'm collecting parts to build a UDS. Do these smokers require a diffuser? How do they perform with one and without one?

It is well worth the time to read this thread from the beginning. You will find several areas of discussion regarding diffusers.

I've read it, but there doesn't seem to be a consensus on the diffuser thing. I'm thinking that if I ever want to try a hot and fast brisket cook that it may burn if there isn't a diffuser in there.

Having the meat drip directly on the coals is a major part of the UDS concept. Having the grate 24" from the bottom of the charcoal basket is key to not burning the meat. Many people believe in turning briskets during the cook, but others leave it fat cap down without turning.

I guess I will just have to experiment. I don't usually turn brisket, but I can change my ways if I have to. I have read a lot about the drippings in the charcoal but never tried it. So, I'll just have to wait and see. If I ever get a drum, I will post some results of my experiments.

Make something temporary to start with. Cook with and without a diffuser and decide which you prefer. I used the oriiginal ash pan from the donor weber I used. Drilled 2 7/8" holes in the bottom so it was able to allow those nice juices to get to the coals.

My first cook went well with the diffuser, but my next will be without so I can decide which i prefer.

Did you cut off the entire rim or just inside it?
