I have that same exact basket that was liberated from my Aunt's garage. Cut the bottom off and wire it to a grate and your good to go. Never have had any problems with cooks up to 6 hours with it so far. I am waiting to see if it will hold up to the brisket I do for Thanksgiving without snuffing itself out. It will hold A LOT of coals though.
