First Time Lighting Question

This is my first attempt to cook with the Big Green Egg. I just lit the lump coal with a fire starter. I shut the lid after ten minutes. I want to maintain 200 degress. The temperature shot up to over 300 degrees right away. I now have the top vent and bottom draft closed to about 1/4 inch. Only the coals in the center are burning. Am I doing this properly?
