Agree, that is not a rust hole, that's deliberate. Cook on it before plugging for sure. Catch can sounds like better idea

I have not seen one with a grease hole there and that one is awfully big. Here is the inside of the one I had. It was bought in 1999.

That is a lot of rust. If I was going to do anything with yours, I would probably add a plate to the whole bottom of the cook chamber. Mine always drained in the right rear corner, but I would put a drain somewhere.

I went with the thermosteel and it worked great. There are three small holes on the opposite side of the smoker that are the grease drains. Broke her in with some drumsticks and they came out tasting phenomenal. Grease drained properly and the thermosteel held.
