If the vents are clean and the firebox is clean, then what I usually do if I'm going to do pizzas or whatever, is to get the chimney starter loaded up, fire up a good load of coals, dump that into the box, and then add some more on top, then I insert the plate setter, my pizza stone, and close the lid with the top iron off and let it get hot. Once that reaches terminal temps I adjust the heat from there.

I don't think you need the blower, but having all the junk cleaned out really helps.

Once its fully died out I usually use my shop vac from the bottom to remove the ashes, and I stir the charcoal to separate the ash from the coals, and remove the little detritus.
