Clean Consistent Wood Burning every Time
Fire management baskets were made popular in the US by Kosmo Q, the competition BBQ cook. This basket will extend your wood refill times upto an hour!!
The problem with offset smoker fire management, is you need to make sure you keep a strong coal bed, so when you put your next log on, it takes quickly, minimising the time you have dirty smoke running through the cook chamber while it's igniting.
The 'V' shape of the Fire Management Basket allows the wood embers to fall into a small well-vented area. Additionally, bonus is the radiant heat this basket gives off. This will also help your wood burn cleanly and efficiently.
It's shape works perfectly with a pinwheel style damper intake. It draws clean air into the fire, then funnels through the basket and into the cook chamber, creating minimum air disturbance, making for a more efficient fire and burn.
Run charcoal and wood, or just charcoal.

We recommend you remove the fire grate if using on a Cactus Jack smoker, run the basket off the base of the firebox.
Granted I have a Franklin which I’d already fantastic, but this basket to makes everything easy and keeping a coal bed a dream. Great with 10” splits too. Blue smoke every time with this basket
This is a must have piece of kit for your cactus jack
Usual prompt delivery by Prosmoke, ordered at the weekend and arrived Tuesday morning.
Really well made and saves a little on wood,keeps a nice centralised coal bed and can warm the splits either side.
Took the plunge and bought this when slightly discounted. Fits well in the firebox and retains a decent residual heat as well as keeping the fire base controlled on long cooks.
I did need to ‘stoke’ the fire a few times towards the end of a long cook (using heat beads and chunks) to ensure the ash wasn’t hampering the fire, but overall, very pleased so after two cooks!! One 15lb brisket and the other was 4 whole chickens and 3 racks of ribs-fire lasted well for both
I'm using the basket in an Oklahoma Joe - Highland. It was a tad tricky to get it into the firebox, but fits nicely once you get it in. I removed the expanded metal tray in the bottom of the basket and sat it straight on the grates in the firebox. It makes fire management a breeze. You can easily maintain a nice bed of coals on the bottom of the basket, meaning when you add a new split, it ignites quickly. Very happy with it, it's worth the money.
