Funny... I have never seen anything that looks like lumber scraps in mine. That would concern me.

The kind in your link... we tried it last summer and thought it had a weird odor that made the food taste funky.

I had to put the grill away for the hurricane but I'll probably drag it back out and will examine my Cowboy carefully

I still have some St. Louis style ribs I want to do before the winter really sets in.

The glue that holds plywood together would make me concerned.

I have been shutting down the Weber for the winter and just using the gas grill through the winter.

You can't beat the convenience. Cold day, I run out and light the grill then back in the house. Back out to the grill to toss on the meat and back in the house. Turn the meat over and back in the house. Time to eat.

Oh, now you've done it....

I think Weber makes a dual charcoal/gas grill. But I'll likely just buy a cheapo gas grill. Maybe now!!
