I use a smokenator 1000 on my kettle all the time -it's pretty easy. I imagine the basket setup wouldn't be too different. Can you put a water pan above the coals? If so, that will help regulate temp since you are not familiar with the setup.
Regardless, set up for a minion burn, about 15 lit coals over 45 unlit. Start with vents 1/2 open and try to adjust from there. Good luck!
