I tried powerwashing, letting it burn, ect. I finally had to buy a new BBQ. If you care about your bbq, don't use it as a smoker. As far as temps go..I run anything from 200-250 depending on what I'm smoking
I have been using my bbq as a smoker for the last couple of years and don't have any of the aforementioned problems.
My bbq is a peice of shit to begin with, but I don't have any grease fire problems.
That said I like to smoke chicken, pork, ribs, etc. My favorite is a big ass pork loin wrapped in bacon smoked over applewood. 6-8 hours at 225*
