I'm a huge fan and user of the Weber gas grills with this configuration. I caution against removing the shields, as this puts the burner tubes directly in target for drips and early deterioration. What you need is to get a handful of cooks on it to buid up some residue. Once you have that, I think you'll find it grills quite nicely, regardless of whether your cooking for 10 or 90 minutes.
I've had my Weber gas grill for 13 years, use it 2-3 times/week year round in Indiana (winters not very kind to outdoor cookers) and have replaced the diffusers once (3 years ago) and am still on the original burner tubes and stainless steel grate (well worth the investment).
You have some pretty good advice here, but it doesn't appear you have a definitive popular concensus yet.
