The water pan is an issue. Remove it. Is the bottom of your basket expanded metal? If it is, set it 1 1/2" above the ash pan which should also be 1" off the floor of the drum
Make a chimney full of charcoal to add to the basket. You should be up to temp in 10 to 15 minutes.
I may stir up some strife with one.
Would everyone please stop using Kingsford. That stuff burns carcinogens. It it's made out of furniture scraps. That's why the directions on the bags say to let the coals turn gray before cooking.
