I don't burn logs every day like some, but I'll respond based on my experience.

1) 30 minutes to 60 minutes is what I get and seems typical.
2) I leave my exhaust wide open and try to control temperature (within a 50 degree window) with coal bed size and size of splits. If you're firebox is big enough, you can also move the coal bed closer or farther away from the pit.
3) These are set up to burn logs so I just use charcoal to get an initial bed. I use my WSMs if I want to sleep. I'm guessing some others have had success extending time with more charcoal in this type of smoker, but I haven't tried.
