Default mini uds

I am building a mini UDS and are wondering how far from the bottom should I put the grill.

I just placed mine just low enough from the top to get a pork shoulder in.

I put my grill about 3 inches from the top edge but I used a Weber Smokie Joe lid. Fit better than it did on the Smokie Joe Q.
