Brinkman gas grill
My guess is they filled it to make it seem like the lid had more heft. I have seen cheap speakers filled with metal plates to do the same.

The unit trips the breaker when you plug it in
the wires are shorted, probably loose inside somewhere and touching steel. these are some of the worst barbecues available in the US; not made well at all. check the power converter connected from the transformer. there is probably a wire loose enough to ground against something near it.

As long as the crossover channels do not leak at any point the gas should be getting to the other burners (assuming that the gas pressure is up to snuff). The next thing to check are the individual burner jet openings for clogs, and finally the flame spreaders should also be clean!

How to get the temp up and keep it up
Depends what you mean by keeping the temp up. This is not a charcoal grill but a smoker and meant for lower temps. but if you are having difficulty with the low to medium temp. ranges, check for excessive drafts, additionally if you are using any additional pans for smoking or collecting drippings assure that they do not excessively block heat circulation.

My gas grill sprays alot of gas when i first turn it on, the has very low flame
You have a faulty gas regulator...
Gas Regulators are notorious for doing just what yours is doing.
After sitting in the same position for a length of time they freeze in that position, then along comes a grain of sand, or other debris and blocks the gas flow.
Remove the regulator if possible, if not try it in place with the tank removed.
Get a plastic headed hammer and gently but firmly tap on the regulator, your trying to free up the diaghram inside.
After tapping and freeing the regulator diaphram reinstall and you will be good to go.
If this does not work, the replace the regulator as it is defective.
Some regulators are ajustable, if you have one of those then try to adjust the regulator, you will see a cap on top of the regulator, that is where the adjustment screw is located.
