First the obvious - was your smokestack vent wide open?

It sounds like you aren't getting sufficient draft into the cooking chamber. You could try an automatic fan controller like BBQ Guru to create a forced draft, but since a high-powered leaf blower still couldn't raise the temp enough I doubt that would be effective.

You probably need to either add a second pipe between the firebox and cooking chamber or enlarge the one you have.
