Humpty wouldn't get hot...

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
Hello all.[p]Last night I did steaks for the first time. I was trying to follow someones recipe that basically said to sear at 700 degrees, then dwell.[p]So I loaded Humpty (yes, I'm plagerizing the name...) with fuel, sterted him up, opened the vents, and waited. And waited. And waited.[p]After a half-hour of not going over 550, I said too bad, and cooked the steaks. Because of the lower sear temp, I let them dwell longer, which was a mistake. The came out a bit over-done for my tastes.[p]Any idea as to what I should have done differntly? I didn't have the firebox full of fuel, so was wondering if that was it. It was just over half-way, maybe 2/3 full. I could look down into it from the top and see very nice red glowing coals (look really neat!), but just didn't seem to want to get up there.[p]Any help appreciated!
