Make sure the basket material is pretty open on the bottom. I made a basket for my offset smoker and used expanded metal for the entire thing. The sides are great, but I need to replace the bottom with either a used grill grate or larger diameter expanded metal. The problem is as the charcoal burns the ash builds up at the bottom instead of falling through easily. Go with the largest diameter expanded metal you can find.
