Intake placement on UDS

Postby Speed » Wed Mar 30, 2016 7:42 pm

I'm building my second UDS and need advice on the air intake placement. My charcoal basket sits 3" off the bottom of the drum. Should I place the intake at this level or go with the standard 2"? I know on my WSM the intake vents are just above the bottom charcoal grate. Thanks for the advice.
