Back in past thread Thirdeye posted a set of jiggler hooks he made to shake the basket in his original BDS.
Yep, I modeled the wiggle rod after these that I made for my Eggs. I used larger 1/4" stainless for the BDS rod to make it a little more manly. LOL I get at least 2 or 3 hours more out of the lump by wiggling it a couple of times during a cook. I actually don't shake the basket, but the "L" reaches into the bottom of the basket and gets wiggled from side to side. The few times I used briquettes, a wiggle really came in handy.
