Default UDS First Burn, couple of questions though - -pics

Heres my UDs I built over the past few days, did it in my spare time at work, its my first shot at one so Im not completely familiar with a few things and hoping you guys can help me out.

1. When lighting the coal (lump) I dumped half a bag into my basket and some into my chimney. After getting the ones in the Chimney hot I dumped them into the basket in the UDS. Is this an ok way to light them all, Its been over and hour and nothing else is catching on yet. Ive got all 3 of my air intakes open 100% and exhaust open all the way.

2. When online can I find an affordable screw on thermometer to gauge cooking temp. Cant find any locally.

Ive attached pics, atleast I hope so. first time Ive tried attaching pics
