    Should I fill it all the way to the firebox line?

    You can fill it right to the top of the fire ring if you want. It doesn't make much difference for an indirect cook. If you are grilling fatty meats or skin on chicken you want as much distance between the coals and the meat as possible. You will hear the term raised direct which means that. On a rib cook I would go at least to the top of the firebox

    Alright, thanks! Will do!

    I had just been doing steaks and burgers for the moment (cooking for 1) so it had been working out perfect with it that low.

    My point was that you won't burn all the lump you put in for a short cook like you would with a metal grill. You will get many cooks out of a full load of lump.
