I need some help regarding measurements. I have a 55 gallon drum which is 34 inches tall. I understand that the rack needs to be 24 inches away from the top of the firebox. I am going to make a charcoal basket 12x12x6 inches tall. I was gonna put two inch legs on it for ash drop/air flow. So I figure 8 inches plus 24 inches to the top rack equals 32 inches. This gives me only 2 inches of clearance between the lid of the drum and the rack. How can this work? Should the cooking rack be 24 inches from the top or BOTTOM of the charcoal basket. Once again, thanks in advance.
