Default Humphrey's Heat Question

Happy Thanksgiving all. I bought a Humphrey's Pint and after an initial break-in I am doing my first cook (ribs and chicken). Here's the problem. I waited for nearly two hours for it to get up to 250 degrees, and it's slow in returning to temp after the door is opened (30+ minutes). I''m using a combination of lump and briquette charcoal, about 2/3rds full. Does anyone have any comments on how quickly there's warms up or returns to temp? Any advice for tweaking or improving the learning curve? The ball valve was fully open during the warm-up, and the unit holds great at 275 as long as I don't have to open the door.
