Guessing I need some sort of way to catch the drippings that don't hit the coals.

I have read that some have put an oil absorbent in the bottom then just vacuum out.

Now I have a question;

Will Lump (instead of Kingsford briquets) solve an ash choke problem on a long burn or do I need to change the basket bottom to a grate instead of #9 X 3/4 expanded?

The brisket I did yesterday turned out great but had some problems with the charcoal. Some my fault (started to hot and had trouble keeping the temp down) then about 1/2 way thru the smoke it seemed I had trouble getting the temp up and this morning it appeared to have an ash choke inside the basket.
