Yea I know the best thing I ever did for my BSKD was get a SPicewine Basket. I don't know if it's the fact that it holds the coal closer so the heat consolidates or the heavy guage metal it's made of or a combination of both. The thing is that the heat control has been incredible comparesd to the fights I had with it before. I do the SandPan in mine to help hold heat instead of the water. Once it's up to temp, it's a beautiful ting.
