Maybe Spice will chime in on this. I have one of his baskets for my BSKD and it has two completely removable baffles that are solid across with an air gap built into each one. I don't have a problem with the slow ignition of the coals and with them being removable, I can pull them out and rake the coals to the front of the firebasket, reinstall the baffles and refill with unlit charcoal and chunks.
