The size sounds fine but you could go bigger if you wanted to, just remember not to over fill it and go with the menion method when starting it. You wil need to shake the drum every now and then to get the extra ash to fall away.
A small basket can cause you problems when cooking larger butts etc as the grease may drip on the coals and extinguish them.

Do you have any pictures or your basket both empty and full as though you would use it for a cook?
