ARRGGHH! I am failing in a stellar manor with the ribs and my new Brinkmann Barrel...

smoker/cooker. It is the small one and I can't get the heat right! First when I wait till temp says 300 degrees to put the meat on it just dies shortly therafter and I have dried out ribs. Then I tried to get a good bed of coals going first, and it never got below 400 degrees for the next 3 hours. Can you give me an actual amount of charcoal to use, and exact steps? I normally am a great cook... But failing horribly here! HELP ME PLEASE!!!
