Yes, I use a Slow N Sear accessory by abc bbq with my weber to help achieve the above.  Works great.  Oh and yes for the foiled lower grate in the cooler area where there is no charcoal.

Like Cmayna I have had great success with the Slow-n-Sear. Before getting it I used the matching Weber smoking charcoal holders that are intended to sit either side of the meat. 

Cmayna mentioned something I found important and want to be sure others understand. The foil on the lower grate seals off air flow through that grate except for under the SnS. Therefore, the air coming in the lower vent ports must all go  through the SnS. The lower port is only open maybe a 1/4" max for each of the three slots and the top air control is only open 1/4 . Air control is easy and makes for consistent temp control. Last time I set it up I got three hours steady 250 with steady TBS from the pecan chunks.

The other trick is to use four large alligator clips to hold the lid tight to the base to stop air leakage.

I've done similar setups with foil only, no SnS.

Man, I just got a vortex, do I need to get another gadget for the Weber? 

I am going to steal that upper damper mod. I'm a little tired of doing the ninja swipe to move a hot damper..
