Yeah, that was the method I went with, but am still unsure on how MUCH charcoal to have in the basket to support that long of a burn. My fire basket is very large (18" in diameter) and also deep (about 15" in height), so filling my basket "nearly to the top" would be close to 20 lbs of charcoal! Probably not very reasonable for a 7-10 hour burn.
I got "Black Magic" humming along at 225 for the last 90 minutes on 4-5 lbs of charcoal. We'll see how long it will hold that temp.
