the fire could not get the air it needed .you May want to get one of those round thing(forget that they are called) you put the charcoal in it and light them in it helps alot

Add some split dry kindling to your charcoal with some twisted newspaper under it. Pour two or 3 ounces of rubbing alcohol over all and light carefully. The paper and wood together keep our charcoal going long enough to stay lit. The wood adds a nice smokey flavor and the rubbing alcohol doesn't make the food taste nasty like starter does. Good luck! :-)
