Really needs dual walls on the dividers to avoid heat transfer to unlit fuel. I use a basket made for me by Bentley, welded with plate, using expanded for the bottom to allow ash drop and ventilation. I have a large offet with a large round firebox - Size of the basket is 18" wide x 11" tall by 26" long, and allows me about 5 hours + burn time per load at about 225* at the grate. Use lump charcoal with wood chip and chunk. Predictable burn time and results, and so much easier than constant tending.
