As to why not set and forget a WSM.

First, what fuel did you use? Lump can burn down pretty fast when you get up to 275. Second, ash build up can reduce the airflow enough to cause a problem, even with lump. It gets worse with Kingsford blue briquettes.

Hope things work out for you. Very good advise to wrap and crank up the heat.
