I also had a basket made and I think the guy welding was really getting into it - he built it like a tank! 16" dia 6" tall
I wanted to see how a full basket (to the top rim but not any higher)would burn and cooked for 12 hours and burned little over 1/3 of the coals. It will definately cook for as long as I need it to.
Sits about 3" high on the coal grate. Ash drops right through.
Just added coals to start the cook.
