Afterwards if I want to increase the temperature, then I have to put some coals there. Or any other ideas???

What smoker are you using? Did you light all the coals at once by chance?

A pair of long tongs are indispensable to have on hand while using charcoal.  I had this problem once.  What I did was pull them out and dip them very briefly in a bucket of water, then onto a garage drip pan.  The quick bath put them out, but the heat evaporated the water quickly.  Then I used them later on in the smoke.  I was able to put them out without soaking them and ruining them.  They burned just fine.  This would work even better with lump than it would with briquettes, I'm sure.
