UDS basket idea
After building a UDS a while back. I don't like how there is always charcoal left over briquettes or lumps after the cook. After talking to several people who cook on these I found that it is a common problem. So for smaller cooks like chicken or ribs I'm trying an idea to correct the problem.
I realize there is no sense in reinventing the wheel when something works. The fact is I enjoy small projects like this.

Here is what I'm trying. It seems to me that the heat is not focused enough. The charcoal gets cold with the tight control of air. So I made a pyramid shape to funnel the charcoal into the center and concentrate the heat. After this I just set it into my existing charcoal basket. I'll post pictures tomorrow when I can see how well it worked.
