Not to kill your momentum with the project, but ditch the charcoal basket idea. Offsets are all about airflow and putting a 12x12x12 basket full of charcoal in the way isn't going to help. Yeah you will get a longer burn time but IMHO it won't be better than building a true fire with a bed of charcoal and splits or chunks laid on top. It will require more babysitting but that is the nature of the beast with an offset. If you want the "set and forget" style with rock solid temps for hours, go with a vertical cooker(WSM/UDS/BGE). Just something to consider and think about.

Of course, using a charcoal basket isn't against the rules! Do what feels right..
