Tracy -- when I was using a 30-24 I experiences similar problems. I made a basket out of steel wire that fit in the fire box. This kept the charcoal from "spilling out" to the edges of the fire box. I would then use either the lit-unilt-lit method or I put a 3-pound coffee can at the left end of the basket, filled the baseket with unlit coal and then removed the coffee can and dumped a chimney of lit coal in the void where the can had been. I always used RO lump. This gave me a fairly uniform burn. I do recall some issues if I was trying to throttle the heat way back by cutting air flow with the spinners. I usually cooked at 260-265 and used the fire box damper to regulate the heat as much or more than the air spinners.
