Your right thirdeye draft is draft regardless of where it comes from. I did happen to see the You Tube video, it only strengthened my thoughts about the air inlet tube. I am also using a smaller version of the Klose charcoal basket. It has 2 1/2'" legs on it to give it height, its 15" square X 6" deep design will usually provide 12 plus hours of cooking time at 220 degrees, when I close the vents and put out the fire I usually have some charcoal or lump left over, haven't let it burn fully to find out how long it would last but it could go easily go 14 maybe 16 hours.
