Screaming Chicken is right. Two of those metal charcoal baskets came with my grill. I used them the conventional way once, but I've decided I prefer the setup in the photo. As I mentioned in an earlier post, this will become a moot point when I buy a smokenator, which I expect to do before the end of the summer.
For those not familiar with it, the smokenator was designed only to fit Weber charcoal kettle grills and they make the task of using indirect heat easier by having the charcoal go into a cordoned off charcoal compartment. It also has a built in spot for a water/steam pan, which they provide.
But to answer Starfire's question, I just keep the meat as far away from the charcoal as is logistically possible. Cooking three racks of ribs made it difficult to keep it all as far away from the heat as I would have liked to, but I was still happy with the way the ribs came out.
You can buy those Weber charcoal baskets separately, by the way. I think they only come with the 26 inch model of the One-Touch grill, which is the model I bought.
