I have to respectfully disagree.

While you are right that more air means a hotter fire, the reason why you get more heat is because you have more fuel burning. The idea is to control your airflow so you can control how many of your briquets are burning. I start out with 10-15 briquets because that seems to be about the right number of lit briquets to give me a temp around 225 degrees.

Think of this simple example... imagine the starting temps of two drums; one that has 2 lit briquets added, and the other with a whole chimney of briquets added. At the beginning, the first will start very low in temperature and the second will be very high.

Give both drums unlimited airflow, and the first will gradually ignite more fuel until until it is as hot an the second.

It's the thermodynamics of combustion; more fuel burning produces higher temperature.

Hope this helps.

Yes I take my car home. I am an accident investigator and I am on call 24/7. Almost not worth having it when you get called out and the wife has to tend to the Q!
