I buy throw away charcoal grills $5 a piece when I leave the next morning I throw away the whole works and move on. I also have a gas Weber I never use. I prefer charcoal throwaways. They also are match light real quick.

Anyway,

I think the problem is with the ashes blocking the bottom vent. Have been thinking about drilling some vent holes up on the side to give it more air flow. If it doesn't work, nothing lost because it really doesn't work now.

Nothing cooks like a Weber charcoal grill (Ducks), a few of those and you've bought one but I get that you don't have to store it. LOL

I used to have a Weber Q grill and it was good but my SIL inherited it.
It was too heavy for camping so I tried an O-Grill, it was lighter but IMO charcoal still tastes better.

I want to cook my food on your old charcoal? Leave nothing for the next camper, unless it's a few chunks of firewood...

The guys that use a Smokey Joe Silver for a smoker, will put a small empty tin can upside down over the bottom vent. Then use a can opener to make holes around the sides where it meets the bottom, and you have a baffle to keep the ashes from blocking the intake.

When smoking you can be cooking for several hours so the ash build up is a big problem.
The Gold version doesn't have this issue, but IMO needs a bit of help for best airflow when grilling, the link I posted earlier using aluminum foil makes this easy.

I cook with a Smokey Joe and leave the vents wide open. I can grill a tri-tip in 40-45 mins and its medium rare. The coals die out if I move the vents at all. I used Duraflame charcoal and no chimney. At home I used a Treager, so I'm used to low and slow. Tri-tip at home is a 3 to 4 hour ordeal in which many beers are sacrificed. ;-)
