Buy a Small SS pet food bowl Drill 6 1/2' holes around the circumference close to the bottom and drill about a dzn 1/4" holes in the bottom. put the dish over the intake sit the basket on top. I helps to use lump also Less ash.

Cover the vent holes with a 4" diameter tin can with holes punched out at the sides.

you can use a large chicken or tuna can, use a church key along the top and your good to go. put it over the bottom vent and BAM!! found this pick from another brethren.

Like this. I cut this out from the large 80oz can of Bush's Beans.

I use the same mod as above. I took a can and punched holes around the bottom with a church key. The ash will build up along the sides of the can but won't block the air flow.
