Not sure this woud be a good choice as it's chromed. The high temps and chrome might give off some really bad chemical fumes. Better safe than sorry. If you can, go to home depot, get a 24 inch by 24 inch piece of expanded metal, measure 6 inches down, 6 six inches in from each corner then use a ruler to mark the 6 by 6 inch square from each corner. Cut the square from each corner, and fold up the sides. You'll end up with a 12x12x6 charcoal basket. Tie off the sides with a couple of rebar ties per side. It works well. If you dont have access to a metal cutter, take it to a machine shop, it wont be that expensive for a few straight cuts. Hope this helps.
