Give us a little more info on your set up. Are you using a charcoal basket? What kind of offset? How high up is your charcoal grate? Are you sure it didn't get choked off from ash?
Answer those questions and we should be better off with giving some help.
I lit up a chimeny full. They werd fired up and left for 30 min approx while i prepared my grilling area and cleaned the cooker. I made a basket as many of us have from expanded metal from home depot. My offset is a NB hondo (almost identical to their black diamond) and there is about a 1.5 inch gap between the bottom of the basket to the bottom of the firebox and no ash at all. Hers is a pic i took of my set up kn my last cook where i used KF. As i am writing this, the basket has 20lbs of stubbs and tempz in center at grate level can not get over 280. I wanted to cook thiz butt at 300
