So I went from a Master Forge Smoker 29 aka Green Machine to a Masterbuilt 1,200-Watt Electric Vertical Smoker on to the new Oklahoma Joe Longhorn model. Overall I'm happy with the purchase. I would have been happier if I could have gotten the Brinkman Trailmaster simply due to reduced amount of modding needed. Anyhow I had a question about setting up a coal basket. I'm in need of a quick fix right now and I was thinking about having the wife grabbing a deep fryer basket to substitute for a cook until I can get the proper coal basket setup. Doesn't know the measurements for a basket to fit in the side firebox of this smoker? I measured 17 length, 15 width 7 height. Thanks in advance guys and gals!
