Yes that should be fine. Below is a picture of mine, It's the steel brake tubing with a little piece of tin crimped on it for a stop. The brake line tubing penetrates the pipe about an inch. I have a thermometer probe underneath the aluminum tape also in the picture. It just lays on top the pipe.

Oh, and all the extra screws you see are there only to seal holes hahaha. Not from deterioration, but I drilled them during my incessant fiddling :lol:

i use cowboy coal, but i am starting a stoker. when i used the mark III i started a wood fire...paper kindling and bigger pieces of branches before sprinkling the coal on it.

ashcat has a nice video of the process on here somewhere.
