Ok so here is what I noticed. This is a small bbq so air flow is crucial. I made a fire ring but the trick is to make is a little smaller that the bottom grate. So air can flow around the coals. If the coals cover the bottom it blocks air flow and the fire stays very low. Here is what I did. for regular cooking I use an l bracket I made from a weber charcole basket holder. now I have no problem hitting any temp I want.
