Lots of different baskets out there. As long as you keep it up off the bottom around 3inches you should be good to go. You can make it taller or larger, once full as it holds more, you get longer burn times but that should not be an issue. Also the more coals it holds, the heavier the basket gets lifting it into the drum.
