comment Is charcoal or the smoker at fault for low temperature smoking?
Yeah, I have a very similar model (I think it's the same one, just a Brinkman brand). I recently bought a relatively flimsy enameled grill pan, bent it (chipped the enamel badly doing this, so It won't last long) so it would fit, and used it for my charcoal. Works like a charm.

comment Smoked a brisket that was edible but not great. What would you do differently?
@Dave probably, but test both probes. Boil some water, and when it boils, they should read 212.

@Dave yeah, that's not uncommon to have it "stall out" though that is a bit of a low temp for a stall. Keep an eye on your smoker temp (don't trust the therm on your smoker unless you've tested it, put an oven therm on the rack). Good call on not touching it. The more you open the door/lift the lid, the more tune it's going to take.

comment How do I catch drippings on a charcoal grill?
@l3win I used to smoke all the time on my 18.5 (got a smoker, honestly prefer how my 18.5 handles to the smoker, but I'm trying to learn it well). However, the original instructions that got me doing it were for a 22.5)

@l3win likely he's talking about a modification to drill a hole in the dome and place a thermometer.

It's a Weber.

It might help if you were a bit clearer about what you were looking for. The video you linked didn't address catching dripping at all, and Mr. Brown uses the very same Weber you're looking at in his second example. Could you clarify the concern?

comment How to cook chicken legs more evenly?
180 is probably a reference to 180C not F. 15-20 minutes at 180F would barely warm chicken.
