I've not tried H/H on my WSM but I found that starting with 2 lit chimneys of charcoal on my 26" kettle got me well over 410. Did you start with more lit coals? That extra heat might get more air flow which should produce more heat.

I don't think a 22" kettle has any more air flow capacity (size of vents) than the WSM.

You might try cracking the lid open a bit.

BTW, the high heat on my 26 was for the first half hour of a turkey (ala Alton Brown) and it did come out good.
