Get a grill grate the size you want, at least the diam of your firebasket. Wrap it in foil,  punch small holes it it. Easy to clean. Done.

Diffusers get in the way of fat dripping into the fire and creating wonderful smoke.  The distance between the firebasket and the food grate should diffuse enough.

If it ain't right, don't do it....If it ain't true, don't say it....If it ain't yours, don't take it.

That's why I punch the holes. I do feel it cooks a little more even with the foil diffuser. But that's me.

Curious, what are you cooking on a UDS that you want to use a diffuser for? Longer cooks, like a brisket?

Yeah. Anything that direct heat from below would dry out or flame. The same goes for my ceramic cookers. I put a disposable aluminum pan and pour in a big 3-lt. bottle of pineapple pop. (I'd pick up both at the 99 Cents Only store.) A cheap and easy solution for a heat baffle. On my big cooker, I have a big "X" cross member to support the water pan. Or I can place it on my grill and put another grill I got at Big Lots on top of it. If the meat is really heavy I put a firebrick on each side for the grill to rest on. You can also use plain water in the pan or Tiki Punch or Root Beer. Both impart a subtle sweet taste to pork or poultry. This method has worked fine for me over hundreds of cooks.  O0
