While posting my last update, the smoke box temp went from 184 to 236. Just about perfect. Well, thats what i read.
The firebox dampers have been completely wide open (see pics below). What I have read, is that the firebox dampers should always be open. So, that the fire does not smolder. If I have problems with temps, I will look into change the dampers.
The smoke box temp went to about 205, so I added another chimney of coals. Hopefully the temp will not get too high.
Thanks to everyone for their help.
