Yea I was baffled too. Must have been something stupid I was
overlooking. But yes in a practical sense it wasn't a big problem
as that temp was fine for the food. And again near the end of
the cook the temps seemed to get higher much easier. Not
sure what was different but I'm sure Ill figure it out.

I think that was the problem. I had the firebox
dampner set to about 1". Realize now I should
have let the fire completely get hot before
closing it. Later on in the cook the coals
finally got nice and white hot and from then
on things acted a lot more like I had expected
them to.
