Sometimes the problem with briquettes is that they ash over and don't give off as much heat. I like to use natural briquettes that are made from lump such as the kingsford competition. Natural briquettes burn hotter and produce less ash than regular briquettes do. They're not as hot burning as lump but are more consistant and even burning.
