High airflow charcoal ring?

    While I'm having fun pimping out my new 18.5 WSM, some parts for which came from Cajun Bandit, I wonder about the high airflow charcoal ring that they've got there ...I don't see anybody bragging about having one.  Are they worth having?  Just for if you want to run your WSM extra hot?  Or what?  The stock one seems to work fine from what I can see...

    Thanks,

    Brian

    I've only used my 18.5 once so far but I can't really see any benefit to it. I am going to put a piece of expanded metal across the bottom of the stock one to keep the smaller chunks of unspent charcoal from dropping through.
