I beg to differ.
I use "the method" in my cimarron all the time and have never had a basket. I usually get 3 or so hours per fuel load. Now that I've sealed up the FB door I can load up and get 6-8 but it requires closer monitoring than with smaller loads.
No need to "beg to differ with me" I know what works on my cooker - I can't speak about yours since 1. it's built heavier, 2. you've modified the door which improves the fire control, 3. you've got a much bigger firebox than what I use.
So, whatever pops your cork. I was just letting the bro know what works in a CHEAP sheet metal cooker. :D
Your mileage will vary!
